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 they’re 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? You are essentially asking someone to be a traitor to their country. Common Pitches: o Money o Ego- retribution o Ideology o Coercion Once you have an asset, you handle them, until they are exhausted of their need Must keep in mind when looking for asset o Can they pass the information onto you in some way or another o Must make sure they are fit for the job, can do it with the risks. Many of the businesses involved must be satisfied, kept happy o Set up a nice relationship with the. o Must make sure the person has access to a lot of good information, communications officers, etc. Some important questions are raised when dealing with Human Intelligence: o Are there people that you don’t want to make the pitch to? Deutch Rules: o Wanted Directorate of Ops to scrub their assets \ o Most Spies operate under Diplomatic cover to qualify for Diplomatic Immunity If country gets angry, the spy gets sent home- less hostile with diplomats o Big spy flop with France o Embassy officers meeting with French high-tech industries, started meeting with them and the French got angry and made a large public stink

about it, they formally kicked the spies out of the country- very strange, normally the French would just ask the ambassador to take the spies out and not make a big stink. o However, it is usually much quieter However, if you are using diplomatic cover, there is a red flag on you when you enter, its kind of hard to have good cover- most diplomats are brought under immediate attention When there is anger towards a country, you close down your embassy and bring home your ambassadors and embassy employees, o Diplomatic cover = official cover- there is also “non official” cover o Non-official Cover goes by NOC- Non-Official Cover What is an advantage of being a NOC- not in position of high visibility. The gov’t doesn’t watch you when you are brought into the country. Sometimes diplomats are followed, apts bugged, etc. NOCs don’t draw much attention, pretend to be businessmen, etc.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
