Partners or Competitors? The Evolution of the Department of Defense/Central Intelligence Agency Relationship since Desert Storm and its Prospects for the Future
JOINT SPECIAL OPERATIONS UNIV MACDILL AFB FL
Pagination or Media Count:
Since 11 September 2001, the United States Department of Defense DOD and the Central Intelligence Agency CIA have worked closely in Iraq, Afghanistan, and during counterterrorism operations. Various media accounts, personal memoirs, and current affairs literature discuss the integration of these organizations. Several operations highlight both the significance of the relationship and the degree to which each organization depends on the other. While various accounts cover the contemporary integration of the two organizations, their operational exploits, and areas of institutional friction, there is a lack of literature that looks at how and why the CIADOD relationship has evolved. An appreciation of the current relationship and the possible future course this relationship might take is dependent on an understanding of how this relationship evolved over time.
