Venezuela’s Intelligence Organization’s Relevance to U.S. National Security. Pick a US adversary or ally (that we do not cover in this class) and discuss its intelligence organization’s relevance to US national security, either in maintaining it or threatening it. This assignment is specifically about the intelligence organization, not the state’s military, although that may be a discussion point. I know your first inclination might be to jump to the UK, but I encourage you to expand your horizons with this assignment. Remember to make an argument that you outline in your thesis statement. “Country X’s intel organization is a threat (or benefit) to US national security because of x, y and z.”
Grading will be based on the attached rubric. Make sure you follow AMU’s writing policies and the Chicago writing style guide (cover page, page numbering, double space, headings/subheadings, etc). The use of required texts and readings from this course is mandatory, but you may supplement with additional academic (credible) sources. YOU MUST CITE YOUR SOURCES AND INCLUDE A BIBLIOGRAPHY in THE CHICAGO MANUAL OF STYLE FORMAT. Saying “I didn’t know” is not acceptable.
