Intelligence Community employees are required to be briefed on various security protocols, at DIA we were required to be briefed on properly handling and securing NATO information. Most IC briefings are simple, employee reads applicable memo and signs name indicating they understand said memo. I signed several documents during my employment with the IC at DIA and CIA.
DIA deployment letter for breaking apartment leases, etc. before deploying to the CENTCOM area of operations. My position with DIA was classified Emergency/mission essential.
I received my Request and Authorization for TDY Travel of DoD Personnel before my Iraq deployment in November 2007. Central Intelligence Agency Office of Medical Services, Security Center Staffs, and CIA Clandestine Service Trainees Class 26 and Professional Trainees Class 19 questioned whether I indeed deployed to Iraq. In part, questions about my professional background led to my imprisonment by CIA personnel at CIA’s Secret Psychiatric Prison, Dominion Hospital in Falls Church, Virginia and my eventual termination from CIA employment.
This is a list of recommended books authored by (Former?) US Army Colonel Conlon and distributed to my DIA Tomorrow’s Intelligence Professionals Class (TIP). TIP introduces new DIA employees to the Intelligence Community and provides a basic foundation in the intelligence discipline and DIA structure. Col Conlon was facilitator for my group, he was an outstanding facilitator. I have not read many of the books on Col Conlon’s list. DIA’s Joint Military Intelligence Center had many outstanding instructors.
