This is the first of three assignments that when completed and appended will form your complete HUMINT operation proposal for this class. This first assignment addresses the first sections of your proposal. The following assignments will add new sections and material to your proposal. For this first assignment, write a 6 to 8 page paper that is broken down into 3 sections (each section should have at least two pages addressing the issues): Section 1 – Topic Discussion and Background1. You will be writing a HUMINT proposal to counter all aspects of Russia’s foreign policy toward Egypt. Your HUMINT proposal may include covert operations (political action, propaganda and information operations, economic action, paramilitary operations, security operations supporting police and the military, diplomatic operations, etc.) and MUST include collection operations against potential Russian targets (Russian trade offices, Russian travel and airlines, Russian shipping, Russian news media, Russian diplomatic missions (consulates, embassies, legations), Russian businesses, Russian military personnel, terrorist groups supported by Russia,and potential allies of Russia (former closely aligned Bloc states). The object is to reduce or eliminate Russian influence in Egyptian affairs (economics, politics, legislation, policy making, security, trade, tourism, and social development). 2. Review historical background and pertinent intelligence issues that relate to the problem. 3. Briefly describe how Human Intelligence is likely to offer an effective solution to the problem.

Note(s):(1) Due to security and operationally sensitivity issues, it is not advised to select or examine one’s own organization for the essay paper, particularly for those students associated with intelligence organizations. It is left to the student’s discretion to consider these security implications when selecting a topic.  (2) When developing the topic, and while writing the paper, one should consider themselves as being in a position of adequate stature so that the recommendations and observations made in this project paper will be considered. Caution should be given so as not to select a topic that might be too broad in scope in order to provide the focused examination required of this proposal. Include peer-reviewed references that contribute to the substance of the paper, and support the topic thesis. Section 2 – Organization and Mission1. Specifically identify the HUMINT organization(s) that is/are chartered for and capable of conducting intelligence operations to correct the problem identified in Part 1 of this project. 2. Include a concise mission statement that defines the objectives and parameters that the organization will operate under. 3. Describe the participants you expect will be involved in the mission (both friendly and adversarial).4. Provide the roles and responsibilities for each organization and show their command relationships.  Remember: the objective is to alleviate the problem through HUMINT means, so carefully select or create an organization capable of doing so. Include peer-reviewed references that contribute to the substance of the paper, and support the topic thesis. Also remember, HUMINT includes both covert action as well intelligence collection/analysis. Section 3 – Operations and Activities1. Concisely describe operations and activities which your organization will execute a specific HUMINT operation from beginning to completion. 2. Explain the various HUMINT activities (i.e. interrogation, debriefing, dead drops, surveillance, etc.) that your organization might engage in while executing the operation. 3. Identify issues that will require coordination with external agencies.

Note(s):(1) Cover, Communications, and Security planning should be integral to this portion of the course project. The scenario that you develop, as well as the operation and activities engaged in should fall within the charter of the selected organization from Part 2. Include peer-reviewed references that contribute to the substance of the paper, and support the topic thesis.
