ABSTRACT
This article discusses various issues related to the intelligence service in the U.S. The author suggests that the reason the U.S. did not prevent the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 is because neither the Central Intelligence Agency nor its intelligence allies had a spy inside the command structure of the terrorist organization Al-Qaeda. The importance of infiltration in national security is discussed in detail.
