NSIS 5590 - Intelligence, Covert Action and Low-Intensity Conflict


Credit Hours: 3

Examines the role of covert action and the execution of low intensity conflict in shaping national security policy. Determine how events since the end of the Cold War, 9/11, and the Iraq War have blurred the lines between analysis, operations, and policymaking. Examines the role of the Intelligence Analyst, and how decision makers use and sometimes misuse Intelligence Community analysis - specifically addressing the issues of politicization of intelligence and policy prescriptive analysis. Explores how the changing nature of intelligence operations (both collection and covert action) has given the Intelligence Community a more direct role in national security policymaking.
