most experts see the most important element of the future threats as
emerging technologies, yet the IC remains doggedly focused on
counterterrorism. As we have seen throughout history, the advent of
industrial revolution has changed the course of warfare, so it should
not surprise any of us to see that technology might dramatically change
the nature of threats and as such, make them harder for intelligence
analysts to assess. Policy makers need help from intelligence analysts
to understand how much of the IC effort should be focused on each type
of new threat or an evolution of an existing threat like terrorism.
