New Law to Spread the Use Of CIA's Analysis Approach
The Washington Post reports that some of the CIA's analysis techniques will now be mandated throughout the intelligence community:
For example, the new national intelligence director must pick an "individual or entity" to be responsible for ensuring that "elements of the intelligence community conduct alternative analysis of the information and conclusions in intelligence products." Such analysis is commonly referred to as "red-team analysis."This all seems to be rather neutral news. Could be good or bad depending on how the regulation is implemented. So long as it results in the _timely_ production of viewpoints that would otherwise not be considered, then it seems a plus.
