THE INTELLIGENCE WAR
Introduction to the intelligence, security, communication, investigative and defence services listing
A few years ago Eye Spy began an endeavour to create a reliable listing of intelligence, pseudo-military intelligence, security and related support agencies. This was always going to be a difficult undertaking and this section is under construction.
In a constantly changing world and with intelligence gathering largely secret, it's no small wonder that not all special units created to carry out such tasks have been identified, nor will they ever be. Academics acknowledge that building an in-depth and comprehensive overview of the intelligence services is not possible with some liking it to an "on-going rolling project."
What we are attempting to do in this archive section is to reference the current organisation by name, provide links (where possible) for further research, and give background on its role, establishment, history and purpose. Please check back for updates.
