Unformatted text preview: 2 nd term: Poli Sci notes Human Intelligence 10/2/07 Premise of Spying: you want to go into a foreign government, you want to know what theyre planning and what they are gong to do. Unless you can get a spy into the office of a foreign prime minister, your spying is hard to get what you want- need human sources in terms of collecting intelligence. Case officers- intelligence officers who operate overseas- 1947 charter gave Typically meet people by doing what they like to do, strike up a relationship on them. o Case o Developmental o Pitch- lots of pitches get turned down- o Asset o Handler Look for someone with access to information, then you make your pitch, what will intice someone to be a spy?
