This assignment consists of a research-analysis paper of at least four pages in length, double-spaced (This page count does not include a title page, abstract

Choose two of the following questions/issues, and write approximately 2 pages on each question/issues that you select:
– Compare and contrast U.S. Counterintelligence to that of a foreign country’s counterintelligence security services.
– What are the lasting ramifications of a past Counterintelligence operation (such as COINTELPRO, VENONA, etc.)?
– Is the current state of counterintelligence in the Intelligence Community adequate? Why or why not?
