The Function of Intelligence in Crisis Management: Towards and Understanding of the Intelligence Producer-consumer Dichotomy
This work is a study of the relationship between intelligence and policy. It focuses on the function of intelligence in crisis management. It provides an integrated approach to the theory of the intelligence process and the principles of crisis management. It identifies those factors that influence the producer-consumer relationship within the context of the traditionalist vs. activist approaches, i.e. the Kent-Kendall debate. It provides new insight into the practical limitations of the traditionalist approach to intelligence. Using terrorism as a crisis phenomenon the study analyzes the function of intelligence and the reasons behind the intelligence failures during the Reagan Administration's foreign policy initiatives in Lebanon 1981-1985.
