Counterterrorism and Intelligence
As you now are aware, all the modules tie in together to explain how and why the Department of Homeland Security operates:
The framework for responding to disasters
The systematic approach for integrated responses
The DHS overview with military interface
Intelligence and information-sharing mechanisms
As you are also aware, DHS does not operate singularly; it depends on partnerships at all levels of operation. So it is with counterterrorism. Read the assigned material and respond to the following exercises.
1. Look up the definition of counterterrorism (please, no Wikipedia or other nonprofessional sources). What is the definition?
2. Look up the definition of intelligence. What is the relationship of intelligence to counterterrorism? Explain with examples.
3. Relate counterterrorism and intelligence with the military
4. From the Background Information section, review your readings/audio/websites and: Explain how a specific counterterrorism team, unit, or partnership operates to counter a terrorist episode. Use a specific example and “walk it through” the process.
