Intelligence and the USA PATRIOT Act
The Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001 (USA PATRIOT Act, or simply the Patriot Act) has generated a great deal of controversy since its enactment just weeks after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Critics argue that the Act was passed opportunistically and hastily after September 11, that it is too broad, and that some of its provisions go too far. Proponents of the Act, on the other hand, are concerned that it does not go far enough; however, its provisions have greatly enhanced information sharing in the law enforcement and intelligence communities.
You are an intelligence analyst for the Department of Homeland Security assigned to the Office of Intelligence and Analysis (DHS-OIA). As an intelligence analyst in the intelligence community, you participate in a law enforcement and intelligence working group. The working group consists of analysts and officers throughout the U.S. intelligence and law enforcement communities who meet monthly to discuss various topics relevant to homeland security. During a recent meeting, the topic of the Patriot Act came up for discussion and debate. As the representative from DHS-OIA, you were asked by your law enforcement peers for your opinion, from an intelligence community perspective, on the Patriot Act and whether or not you felt it has enhanced information sharing between the communities.
