Description

For this assignment, instead of looking at an intelligence problem, you will look at an intelligence failure.  To get started, check out the Foreign Policy article linked below. The article highlights 10 of the biggest intelligence failures in US history. You are to select one of those failures as the subject of your paper. You may choose a failure not on the list, but if you do, you must get your topic approved by me. Please note, that your topic does not have to focus on US intelligence, it can look at the failure of another country's intelligence agencies. Also note, that this is not intended to be a critique of any presidential administration past or present. Instead this is an analysis of the analytical pitfalls that led to the intelligence failure. This paper should include the following elements:

  • Title page
  • Introduction with strong thesis statement
  • Background and analysis of the intelligence failure
  • Assessment of which analytical techniques learned in this class could have prevented the failure (you may discuss more than one)
  • Conclusion
  • Bibliography

Intelligence Failure: The Yom Kippur War
Introduction


Different governments in the world have experienced intelligence failures at some point,
which has ended up affecting the usual way of life for the people.

Background


One of the common intelligent failures in the history of time is the Yom Kippur War.

Causes of the Surprise Attack in Israel


Many aspects define why Egypt caught Israel by surprise. Israel was taking advantage of
the status quo that crawled along during the six-year era between 1967 and 1973.



The confidence level of Israel made it underestimate the capability of its enemy in
distinct aspects.



Different authors have attempted to examine whether Israel had any clue of any weapon
development or planed wars prior the occurrence of the Yom Kippur War.



Israel could not believe the possibility of two nations merging powers and planning to
attack it.

Analysis of the Intelligence Failure


Many interested researchers have attempted to develop different cases scrutinizing the
Yom Kippur War, whereby the several of them have associated the war to intelligence
failure. The Yom Kippur War was an intelligence letdown to Israel and the United States



There was the ultimate significance of threats and precise intelligence that could have
coursed intelligence professionals to predict an imminent attack.

OUTLINE


Israel’s military intelligence formed another cause of intelligence failure.



In some cases, deception is an aspect that affects the intelligence systems of many
nations.

Analytical Techniques that could have prevented the Intelligence Failure


Even though there were failures in the intelligence systems of Israel and the United
States, it might have been possible to avoid the Yom Kippur War.

Conclusion


The 1993 Yom Kippur War emerged because Egypt and Syria claimed to have back the
ground lost in the 1967 six-day war.

the drive behind the same to take a proper perspective, it is necessary for governments and
nations to take painstaking efforts significant in resolving distinct conflicting aspects that
maintain intelligence failure to its misunderstood definition today, majorly among the public. For
the past century, many individuals and countries have experienced intelligence failures that have
taken place regularly. Such occurrences occur in some scenarios at a defined political loss and
other cases occasionally, which results in a devastating loss of lives and destruction of...
