Abstract

“Langley, we have a problem.” That was the headline of a New York Times article in the summer of 2006 lamenting the Central Intelligence Agency’s (CIA’s) loss of capacity for generating the strategic intelligence necessary for informed policy making (Weiner, 2006). Carl W. Ford, Jr., a former assistant secretary of state for intelligence and research, was quoted as saying, “Why spend $40 billion a year to store data on hard discs that analysts can’t get to? We probably use 5 percent of the data we collect on a daily basis.” The article pointed out that the CIA’s inability to generate knowledge from mountains of data stemmed from “an inability to ask the right questions” and a tendency toward “instant analysis” in the information age.
