The below is taken straight from the assignment – the assignment is to address four problems with no more than two pages per problem (total of 8 pages). Grading rubric is attached The purpose of this assignment is to demonstrate the ability to set up a problem, identify what you need, and how you would solve the problem using a structured method. The submission should be in table form and not exceed two pages per intelligence problem. Each table should list the primary intelligence problem (given below). In your table, you must break down the primary problem into its components, then listing Priority Intelligence Requirements (PIRs) / Essential Elements of Information (EEIs) for each component question. PIRs may be considered “general statements of intelligence need” or generalized questions about the operating environment (Curtis E. Lemay Center 2015). The PIRs should then be the driving force for your more specific EEIs. You should identify the analytic methods you would recommend using to analyze the information to answer the overall question. Finally, you need to explain why those methods are appropriate. Your submission will be graded using the following rubric (see rubric chart below): 1. break the intelligence problem into component questions, 2. articulate Priority Intelligence Requirements and Essential Elements of Information, 3. identify intelligence analysis methods that you recommend to address the problems (based on the type of information you identify and the nature of the question), 4. provide a textual explanation of why you chose the methods you did and what you can expect by using the methods, (NOTE: any submission which does not pursue the purpose of this assignment–structuring an intelligence question for analysis–will be considered “off-topic” and will be assessed a zero). A few important thoughts: No one method can stand alone as an adequate method. It takes looking at the problem from more than one approach to get a meaningful view of the solution to the problem. You should list the methods that you would recommend and in a few words identify what the method would achieve. (You may choose whatever format you think works best to communicate these ideas.) Further, the questions below are broad and general. If you need to make assumptions to help you address each problem please document your assumptions (this is more important than you may at first think). Feel free to draw on any method you are aware of and if you have questions on this please reach out, that’s what I’m here for. If you are concerned that I may not recognize your method, please provide a footnote explaining. It is not possible to list all PIRs/EEIs so it is impossible to be complete given the time available for this assignment. However, I will evaluate your selection of component intelligence questions, intelligence requirements, and the centrality of the methods you recommend in addressing the core nature of the problem. Be sure that it is clear which methods address which subproblems. For example: Problem: The US has become aware that the Pakistanis have provided missile technology to Yemen. This point is confirmed. However, it is unclear what the Yemenis are intending to do with the technology. What is the outlook for this development? Subproblems: What technology was transferred? What threats does this pose to the region, and does this change the regional balance of power? What is the likelihood that Yemen will reexport this technology to substate groups or states that pose a threat to US interests? List associated PIRs/EEIs Then identify what methods you would use to answer the problem and subproblems and explain why these methods are the best and most appropriate to answer the questions(!). Use the four following problems to address for the assignment: 1. To what extent is Iran influencing policymaking by the Lebanese government and political leadership? 2. A car struck a prominent Russian opposition leader while she was crossing a busy London street. Who is responsible? 3. The US is considering a covert operation to destabilize the government of Venezuela with the hopes this would provoke the downfall of the current regime. What are the risks to such an operation and what might be the unintended consequences of such an operation? 4. What are the expected social, economic, and consequent political effects of COVID-19 on India currently and in the coming year?
