Now, the priorities are reversed, thus requiring the cooperation of intelligence, military, and law enforcement to communicate and address the challenge of dealing with individuals and terrorist organizations rather than states. But as intelligence gathering changes with new technology and powers, controversial questions arise over the transparency we should and can expect from our governments and militaries as they seek to anticipate the actions of terrorists and terror cells both at home and abroad." "Intelligence for an Age of Terror outlines the extent of the challenges across both foreign and domestic data collection and analysis, presenting the issues of value that arise as new targets require collection of more information at home."--BOOK JACKET."
