New Resources:
             New WWII source material (Target Intelligence Committee) now available: US National Archives/College Park:
             Andy Vaart at CIA’s Center for the Study of Intelligence would like to “get word out that three monographs on the intelligence/policy relationship written by Greg Treverton made their way into the world of fully unclassified material, and we have posted them on cia.gov. They are Greg’s takes on the 2007 NIE on Iran’s nuclear programs, the 1990 NIE on Yugoslavia (and why few gave a hoot), and the PDB under three administrations.” See details at:
             Russ Travers has a paper posted to the website of the US National Counter Terrorist Center which “suggests an approach to using post 9/11 CT lessons learned dealing with terrorist identities and networks against other transnational threats.    Many of our investments in tradecraft, business processes, information sharing, data processing and information technology could be used against transnational criminals, proliferators, traffickers and cyber actors to better integrate our efforts and defend against, track and ultimately defeat such threat actors.    The article explains how.” See article here: https://www.nctc.gov/docs/Using_Counterterrorism_Lessons_Learned_to_Address_Other_Transnational_Threats.pdf
