Abstract and Keywords
This article discusses the evolution of the internal collaboration in procuring intelligence specifically in the global intelligence era. After the 9/11 attack and the passage of the 2004 Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act, the U.S. entered the era of national intelligence. This era is marked by the joining of domestic and foreign intelligence into national intelligence. The Director of National Intelligence (DNI) was formed and the DNI was tasked of ensuring that foreign intelligence and domestic law enforcement agencies worked together in ways never before with information needed to protect the U.S. citizen. In this new era, it has become apparent that U.S. intelligence alone cannot collect and analyze data, the information, and the intelligence necessary to meet its responsibilities and carry out its mandate of safe-guarding the nation. Sharing arrangements and international intelligence partnerships hence became significant and essential. Effective international collaboration has become a new standard which measured the effectiveness and the accountability of the Intelligence Community.
