The life of a counterintelligence (CI) operative has been immortalized in film and novels as being filled with glamour and excitement. While international travel, heroism, and danger are all part of the job description, the fundamentals of counterintelligence are discipline, skill, and—well—intelligence. CI operations include conducting investigations, offensive and defensive operations, security and vulnerability analyses, and intelligence collection in peace and at all levels of conflict to support command needs. This guide serves to inform commanders, agents, and analysts on how to identify, neutralize, and exploit any foreign attempts to conduct operations against the U.S. Army. Find out how CI operatives combat terrorism, create battlefield deception, and inform all echelons of combat of both real and potential threats from the U.S. Army's own guide to counterintelligence. The tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP) outlined are the same instructions that CI personnel follow in the field. As the world becomes more interconnected and as technological advances continue to be made, proper CI techniques are exceedingly critical to the protection of the U.S. Army. Counterintelligence is not just the subject for an entertaining story, it is how peacekeeping, humanitarian, and counter-drug operations are carried out in this globalized world.

INTRODUCTION a. The value of all counterintelligence (CI) investigations is linked directly to the quality of reports such investigations yield. The finest investigative work loses its value if the CI Special Agent does not report the results accurately, clearly, and concisely. It is therefore paramount that all CI Special Agents devote a great deal of effort to ensure they become expert report writers. b. CI investigative reports transmit information to a regional control office to provide a record of investigative activities and help decision makers reach informed decisions about the direction an investigation should take. Failure to produce high quality reports could jeopardize national security interests and may result in the loss of American lives. A misguided investigation resulting from poor CI report writing can lead to the loss or destruction of US facilities, the successful carrying out of a terrorist act, or the loss or compromise of classified material, giving an opposing military force a decisive advantage over US Forces on the battlefield. c. The standardization of CI investigative report formats is designed to ensure the logical presentation of specific information, regardless of where, or by whom, the report is prepared. CI reports must present all available information to answer any and all reasonable questions reviewing authorities may need answered. d. Quality CI reports rely heavily upon the CI Special Agent’s attention to detail. Readers of CI reports must understand fully and exactly what the CI Special Agent is reporting. The report becomes the sole source of information on that particular investigative activity. Reports must be: (1) Accurate: Accuracy is the most important characteristic of any report. Accuracy means precise, exact reporting and careful descriptions. The report must accurately reflect the facts furnished by the interviewee. If a Source expresses an opinion or belief which is not a known fact, you must report it as such. Reports must state exactly what the source saw, heard, said, and did. (2) Pertinent: Pertinent information relates directly to the investigation. It can be any information that leads to a better understanding of the facts and the persons involved. (3) Clear: The report must be logically organized and understandable. CI Special Agents must write sentences clearly to avoid any possible misinterpretation of the facts. You must emphasize ideas in a direct, uncomplicated style using standard, grammatically correct English, and simple wording. (4) Unbiased: An unbiased report includes all pertinent information about the incident under investigation. You must never omit information that does not support your view of the facts. You must do your best not to form your own opinion about what happened in order to remain an objective, impartial, and unbiased reporter of facts. (5) Concise: A concise report is straight to the point. Conciseness implies brevity, but does not dictate the length of the report, which will depend on the information available. While we should strive for brevity, we must never sacrifice accuracy or completeness in the process. (6) Complete: Reports must contain all the facts that answer the six basic interrogatives: WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, WHY, and HOW. The report must leave no unanswered questions. If you omit a single link in the chain of facts, decision makers may make incorrect decisions, the results of which could prove disastrous. Proofread all your completed reports and compare them to your notes. (7) Uniformity: Agencies write reports in very much the same format throughout the Department of Defense (with the exception of some regional differences based on geographical peculiarities). This ensures all persons who may read the report regardless of location easily understand the information.
