The US Intelligence Model and the UK Intelligence Model

It is evidently clear from the discussion that the USA and the UK have different approaches when it comes to the intelligence service that they use. However, their main idea is to achieve a common goal. That is each intelligence service should protect each country. There are very little or no similarities in the intelligence service of this two countries. This also involves their structure. The intelligence service in the United States of America delegates the intelligence service among sixteen different agencies. The sixteen different agencies run across the military, and the federal governments. Eleven of the intelligence services are in the federal government while five are in the military. Several advantages come along with using this methodology. One of them is that it gives each intelligence service an opportunity to handle a specific part of the intelligence conundrum. These intelligence services are then divided into various divisions. One of them is the Central Intelligence Agency. This branch of the intelligence service deals with the human intelligence operations. Secondly, the U.S has another branch of intelligence service called the National Security Agency. This branch deals with signal intelligence. The division of this intelligence to work independently allows every intelligence division to be an expert in its own field. It also allows the several intelligence services to be handling many different cases. Conversely, these intelligence services are too bureaucratic, which hinders the quick flow of information from one division to another. Moreover, the collaboration of the different intelligence services is made difficult. This is because of the different rules and principle that are used in the internal operations of the organization.
