This article is one intelligence consumers attempt to help bridge the gaps between the present and the future on the one hand, and policymakers and the Intelligence Community on the other. To begin, I will sketch the main forces that this policymaker sees shaping international relations in what Secretary of State Colin Powell has called the post-post-Cold War world. Then will outline some important questions that will merit serious attention by the Intelligence Community in the years ahead. I doubt any one will be surprised that once again a policymaker will offer more questions than answers. In conclusion, I will add another voice to the calls for a cultural change in the Intelligence Community, one that will encourage its members to seek out rather than shun direct and close engagement with policymakers and their concerns.
