Opinion and Intelligence (DIEEEO45-2012)

Opinion and intelligence are almost antithetical terms for those responsible for providing the Government with sufficient information for the strategic decision‐making process. In this context, it is essential to be aware of the difference between information and intelligence and the role played by the intelligence cycle and the analysis. The intelligence work requires sources as close as possible to the origin of the information. It is also important for the citizens to know that, in order to fulfil its tasks, an Intelligence Service always operates within the framework of a series of goals previously set by the Executive.
