Special Agent Discusses How CI Officials Gather Info While Protecting Civil Rights

Henley-Putnam University’s free webinar series continues with the Insider’s Guide to Intelligence Oversight and Counterintelligence.

On Thursday, June 23, 2011, at 1:00 PM EDT (10:00 AM PDT), Colonel Michael Angley, former U.S. Air Force Special Agent and Senior Military Advisor to Henley-Putnam University, will lead the webinar, which explores the rules and procedures under which counterintelligence (CI) personnel operate when it comes to U.S. persons.

“There are various authorities under which CI personnel conduct their missions, such as executive orders and federal laws,” said Col. Angley. “The term ‘Intelligence Oversight’ aims to protect and preserve the civil rights of American citizens and others covered by the law while empowering CI personnel to do their jobs effectively. It’s a delicate balancing act for the CI community.” During his April webinar on Counterintelligence, Col. Angley touched upon Intelligence Oversight, but he did not go into depth because of the complexity of the subject. The June webinar is a natural follow-on to the CI webinar because it provides the detail and attention this important topic deserves.

During the free webinar, Col. Angley will discuss:

  •     the real definition of a “U.S. Person”;
  •     what information about U.S. Persons the CI community can lawfully collect, retain and disseminate;
  •     rules for special collection methods (intrusive means, such as electronic monitoring, concealed monitoring, physical searches, etc.); and

the “oversight” part of Intelligence Oversight (how the community is policed and inspected).
