The need to proliferate intelligence to all appropriate levels of society is an imperative that has been all to vividly illustrated by the attacks of 9-11. Terrorism cuts across all levels of society through loss of life, economic chaos and inhibiting freedoms. The horrific loss of life cannot be minimized or discounted, but the damage goes further and its effects are enduring. Estimates of the future economic impact of terrorism, based on 9-11 losses, range from 100 million to 100 billion dollars per year. These numbers don't quantify the emotional toll or the self-imposed loss of personal freedom that attacks the very nature of democracy. The prolific nature of terror calls for an equally prolific response. This thesis has argued that in order to proliferate the intelligence, that will connect the dots and mitigate future terror attacks, all aspects of the intelligence enterprise must leveraged to form a collaborative intelligence community that includes federal, state and local law enforcement as well as private sector partners. The policies and programs examined identify information sharing as the chief enabler of leverage. The premise is that the more information shared the more intelligence is produced. This positive relationship drives the concept of intelligence proliferation.
