Create your own intelligence agency.

Create your own intelligence agency.

Create your own intelligence agency. You can do this one of two ways–(a) choose one and institute major reforms in its structure; or (b) build a completely new one whose purposes you will choose. For example, if you choose the CIA, you may want to use some of the reforms suggested in the book to change its structure into “centers” for transnational targets; reorganize the way the departments are arranged by geographical areas or subject matters. You may want to abolish some departments and create new ones or combine them, or anything else you can think of that might make a better and more efficient agency. When I was there, each department had its own lawyer who rejected or restricted many of the proposed actions before they could get out of the office. If you choose to create your own agency, who will it report to? The President directly or to the DNI first? Will it be more bureaucratic or a stand-alone super secret place that reports only to the President directly without any middlemen? A lot of new spy fiction books have these which also include assassinations as part of their covert actions. I have heard rumors that they exist, but I do not know for sure. Do NOT use classified sources and methods for any reason. Cite at least three peer-reviewed articles to support your research. Your project text should be about 2500 words (about 10 pages, double-spaced in a 12-point font and one-inch margins). Some graphics, diagrams, organizational charts, etc. are all welcome, if you wish to include them and are talented in these ways, but they are not required. If you do, make sure most of your project is text. This is a creative exercise, and I want you to have fun with it. There are almost no limits for this project, so think out of the box. DISCLAIMER TO HOMELAND SECURITY: This is merely an intellectual educational exercise. No people or property will be harmed. Do not try this at home.
