Recall, if you can, the CIC's official mission statement. Then read the following mission statement of the current USAIC. Their current motto is "Always Out Front"!
"The United States Army Intelligence Center's mission is focused on Leading, Training, Equipping and supporting the world's premier corps of Military Intelligence Professionals - imbued with a warrior spirit, self-discipline and mutual respect. MI Soldiers work at all echelons, with tactical, operational and strategic commands; they are on point - always out front providing essential and critical intelligence to the commander. We take great pride on our ability to maintain a reputation for professionalism, caring and responsiveness to the needs of the MI Corps and the Army. We are committed to Good Stewardship of the Environment and take pride in the Quality of Life on this post.
http://asa.npoint.net/mistory.htm The Military Intelligence Story: A Photographic History. Includes the following quote-
"The computer allowed intelligence specialists to create and manipulate enormous masses of data, and improved communica tions systems allowed this information to be disseminated down to the field. Moreover, computers could now perform functions as diverse as translating documents and enhancing imagery. Technology was not only an intelligence asset, but a vulnerability. Since emanations from unshielded electronic equipment could be acquired and analyzed by foreign intelligence services, Army counterintelligence was forced to develop the so- called TEMPEST program to counter such radiation hazards. Additionally, counterintelligence specialists now had to concern themselves with the possibility that computers could be penetrated by unauthorized "hackers" and that information could be destroyed by unauthorized computer "viruses." Moreover, sophisticated technologies now provided more tools for spies, ranging from specialized miniature cameras to various inconspicuous "bugging" devices, creating additional problems for the counterintelligence agent.
