Sharing Intel
By Micah Halpern

Wednesday November 9, 2005

I've Been Thinking:

There has been a lot of talk in the United States about sharing intelligence information.
The question is: Should national agencies share information with local and state law enforcement?

The answer is: Yes and No.
Yes, if local and state agencies are trained to properly read and interpret the information.
No, if the information comes in an intel vacuum.
The problem is not the information, the problem is the ability to understand and apply the information.
Intel is not just the gathering of intelligence and information.
Intel is the art of connecting the dots, reading between the lines, ferreting out the truth in the vast array of information that is gathered, transmitted, passed along.
The hard part is interpreting information and then predicting the real risks.

Every lead does not turn into an attack.
