Assignment Instructions

on the information that you prepared from your Midterm Assignment,
prepare a new research paper that addresses the below information in 5-7
full pages of content (not counting title or reference pages):

For the terrorist organization likely to conduct an attack within the United States that you selected, determine:

– What domestic data collection programs would be best utilized on the organization you selected? (Intelligence Collection disciplines discussed in week 5) Do not focus on overseas intelligence collection programs; this is an HLSS course and we are focused only on the homeland.

– Which members of the IC would be the best collectors of intelligence on this particular organization? (we discussed the agencies of the intelligence community in week 2)
You may address agencies that collect overseas and within the homeland
as the terrorism nexus overlaps both domains. You may also consider some
of the field agencies of DHS (since DHS I&A is just an office and
does not collect) as some of the operating components do collect
like ICE, CBP, USCG, and the Secret Service (who does focus on terrorism
financing). Again, this is a Homeland Security course, so focus on the
agencies that can support the homeland (like the FBI), not primarily
overseas intelligence collection of foreign targets.

– What intelligence analysis strategies would be the most effective and why? (choose only from the strategies discussed in the week 6 lesson).
Remember that critical thinking is not a strategy — be specific about
what you think will help analyze what we collect on a clandestine
terrorist group attempting to attack the U.S. homeland.

As a paper for this HLSS course, these questions are to be answered as
it relates to collecting and analyzing intelligence on the terrorist
group plans and activities within the U.S. as they prepare to attack so
that law enforcement and security officials here in the homeland can
detect, identify, and warn on this potential or hypothetical attack. You
do not need to address how to stop this attack, that will be the
subject of your recommendations in your final paper. Only address your
hypothetical attack using a paragraph or two
(unless you were specifically told that you did not address the attack in sufficient detail in your midterm).

progress paper will set the stage for your final paper where you will
then discuss how intelligence, law enforcement and homeland security
officials from all three levels of government can prevent or disrupt
this attack (as well as your recommendations to them in your final
paper). Therefore, do not address measures to stop or interdict the terrorists in your progress paper, only
focus here in this paper on intelligence collection disciplines, the
most appropriate IC agencies to play a role, and the most effective
analytical techniques to employ in this scenario.

I would also remind you that the
CIA does not collect anything domestically, they are a foreign
intelligence agency. See the readings from week 5 as well as this link
to Executive Order 12333
The NSA is very different as they can and do collect both foreign and
domestic communications when authorized by a court (like FISA) or under
certain conditions by the Attorney General (to support the FBI). See

Progress Assignment is due on Sunday of Week 6. The analysis must be
double spaced and follow APA guidelines (in -text parenthetical citation
format, not endnotes or footnotes) and be free of typographical,
spelling and grammatical errors (see example paper). 5 is the minimum
number of pages of content not counting title page and reference
page. Name the assignment “LastnameHLSS320Progresspaper.doc”. Compliance
with the above directions, quality of your analysis, and the SSGS
Assignment Rubric for 300-400 Level Classes will be used to evaluate
this assignment. Assignment Rubric

on assignments: The first paper (the midterm, your Red Cell paper) was
about the terrorist group you selected and was basically from the
terrorist perspective, and it should have addressed attack scenarios of
how your group could attack the U.S. Homeland. The second paper (the
progress assignment) is from the friendly perspective and is on how the
U.S. can do intelligence collection and analysis on the terrorist group:

For the final
assignment, it will give you an opportunity to describe how to stop the
attack by making your own recommendations based on what you learned.

You must use APA (in-text parenthetical) format [but not endnotes or
footnotes] in HLSS owned courses. The APUS library has many useful
documents, videos and guides on how to research, write and cite for
college level papers. See I
have also attached an example papers to the assignment instructions for
your midterm that you should use as a template for your papers in this

sure you read the instructions carefully and that you focus your paper
on answering the assigned question. This assignment is a research paper, not an opinion paper, so you need to cite scholarly sources to support your thesis. Make sure you use APA style in-text parenthetical citations at
the end of every sentence where you are quoting or paraphrasing
another’s ideas (or any information) that is not your own thoughts and
words, like this (Bergen, 2015, para 14). I highly recommend you use the
APUS writing guide based on the APA style which can be found in the
university library or at this link: APUS Style Guide for APA.
You are welcome to use supplementary sources to compliment the assigned
readings based upon your research, but make sure you use scholarly and
credible sources. See the APUS Library Homeland Security Program Guide for good sources, as well as the APUS Research Primer and the APUS Library Research FAQs.


– 5-7 Full pages of text (not counting title page or references). 5 FULL pages of content is the minimum acceptable length

– Written according to the APA style and format;

– Use Times New Roman 12 point font;

– 1 inch margins on all sides with no paragraph indentation other than the first line by .5 inches

– Double
space all text (no extra lines or spaces after a paragraph or section
headings and no added font sizes or lines either)

respectable number of credible resources used, cited in the paper as
in-text citations, and included on the reference page. A good rule of
thumb is at least 2 scholarly sources per page of content (at least 10
scholarly references for this 5 page paper). Use those sources provided
to you throughout the course (listed in the announcements), as well as
other material obtained from conducting your own research. Freely
utilize appropriate and reputable academic sources, summarize in your
own words and cite accordingly.

Be mindful of excessive direct quotes as the paper should not contain just a string of various quotations. Make sure you comply with all academic integrity standards expected by APUS and as slide 14 of the APUS Academic Integrity presentation
posted in course syllabus (and the week 1 introduction forum) states
“Quotes cannot make up more than 10% of the text of your assignment.” So paraphrase where you can and provide your own analysis and synthesis of your research. See
the syllabus tab within this course for more important information on
academic integrity and the repercussions of plagiarism.
