Think about the information you’ve learned thus far about intelligence analysis, and particularly in regard to the Five Steps of the Intelligence Cycle (i.e. Planning, Collection, Processing, Analysis, and Dissemination). You may find some parts of the movie disturbing, but please focus on the events portrayed in the movie through the lens of the Five Steps of the Intelligence Cycle. After watching the movie Zero Dark Thirty, please respond to the following questions for this Discussion Board assignment:
Describe the portrayal of the main character’s role as an intelligence analyst. Based on your assigned readings this week, do you think the portrayal of the intelligence analyst in the movie is accurate? Explain your answer.
Provide at least three examples from the movie which portray an intelligence analyst performing duties in support of the “Five Steps of the Intelligence Cycle.” Specifically describe the intelligence cycle step in your three examples.
Provide at least one example of an intelligence analyst success, and one example of an intelligence analyst failure. Identify which step of the intelligence cycle was involved in each example.
The Human Rights Act sets out the fundamental rights and freedoms to which everyone in the United Kingdom is entitled. It incorporates the rights set out in the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) into domestic British law and came into force in October 2000. The Act has three main effects : 1. Cases Can Be Heard in a British Court The Act incorporates the rights set out in ECHR into British law. Therefore, once there is an alleged breach, the case can now be heard before a British Court rather than the European Court of Human Rights. 2. Public Bodies must Respect Individual Rights The Act requires all public bodies, including Courts, Police, local authorities, hospitals and publicly-funded schools and other bodies carrying out public functions, to respect and protect individual human rights. 3. New Laws are Compatible with Convention Rights Parliament should ensure that new laws are compatible with the rights outlined in the ECHR (although ultimately Parliament is sovereign and can, if it wishes, pass laws which are incompatible). The Courts will also, where possible, interpret laws in a way which is compatible with Convention Rights . In relation to the treatment and detention of mentally disordered persons, the following ‘Convention Articles’ are now incorporated into domestic law : Article 2 Right to Life Article 3 Freedom from Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment Article 5 Right to Liberty and Security Article 8 Right to Family and Private Life Article 14 Prohibition on Discrimination Although this paper is primarily concerned with the detention and treatment against the will of a mental disordered person, Article 2 may also be relevant where a person’s mental degeneration has reached a stage where no useful purpose would be served in prolonging that person’s life. This was the issue with Alfie Evans, a child in hospital suffering from an incurable degenerative neurological condition. Although the parents’ application to Appeal was unsuccessful , they still pursued their case, a key element of which was the child’s right to live. In this case, the medical evidence regarding quality of life overrode the right to live, which the courts accepted . The parents, although reconciled to the terminal nature of Alfie’s child’s condition, had argued that it was not for the British hospital to determine the circumstances, including the time and place, in which Alfie should be treated. Nevertheless, the effectiveness of HRA in relation to detention of mentally disordered persons has been evident in several cases where the Courts had to decide between family wishes and mental he>GET ANSWER
