9781288299133: Thickening the Fog: The Truncation of Air Intelligence since World War II

Air intelligence support to Allied Forces during World War II stretched across the spectrum of intelligence. This broad collection of capabilities enabled the intelligence community to support air operations throughout the world in two separate theaters against two distinct enemies. During the Cold War, the intelligence community truncated these intelligence capabilities by focusing on one enemy, the Soviet Union. A majority of air intelligence support focused on finding targets within the Soviet Union and how to get the strike packages into the country. As a result, the Korean and Vietnam Wars caught air intelligence unprepared, with a lack of reconnaissance assets, intelligence professionals, and effective maps. After the Cold War, truncation of intelligence continued, but this time it was due to a lack of strategic direction from the US government and a self imposed generalization of intelligence officer training. This truncation led to intelligence missing indications of the terrorist attacks on 9/11. Currently, air intelligence remains truncated due once again to a focus on a singular target, this time extremist organizations and their efforts against the United States. Ultimately, this truncation may lead to gaps in information on potential enemies such as a nuclear-armed Iran or cyber attacks from China, leaving us unprepared for a future conflict. In order to support a grand strategy effectively, air intelligence must take advantage of a broad spectrum of capabilities.
