Vaults, Mirrors, and Masks
Rediscovering U.S. CounterintelligenceeBook - 2009
"Decision makers matching wits with an adversary want intelligence -- good, relevant information to help them win. Intelligence can gain these advantages through directed research and analysis, agile collection, and the timely use of guile and theft. Counterintelligence is the art and practice of defeating these endeavors ... In one indispensable volume, top practitioners and scholars in the field explain the importance of counterintelligence today and explore the causes of -- and practical solutions for -- U.S. counterintelligence weaknesses. These experts stress the importance of developing a sound strategic vision in order to improve U.S. counterintelligence and emphasize the challenges posed by technological change, confused purposes, political culture, and bureaucratic rigidity."--Page 4 of cover.
