Strategic Intelligence and Terrorism From the 1970s to Today: How We Got Here From There

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

As the debate over the need for intelligence reform grows in the months ahead, it is essential to have a factual basis on how American strategic intelligence has waxed and waned in the last decades and to establish reasonable expectations for intelligence use to support policy making as well as provide a basis for responsible intelligence reform.
