Overview

Intelligence networks will forever be with us, and surely there will always be an appropriate role for the intelligence community. There are still important but hard to learn facts about targets—including the intentions and capabilities of rogue states and terrorists, the proliferation of unconventional weapons, and the disposition of potentially hostile military forces—that can only be identified, monitored, and measured through dedicated intelligence assets. In Residual Uncertainty, Roy Pateman gives numerous examples of where security has been breached, and networks, severely, even irreparably compromised and explains how the consequences of intelligence failure will surely be graver in the future. Pateman pinpoints the causes of failures in intelligence and policy in today's world and offers solutions that will drastically overhaul and improve our intelligence networks.
