Abstract: The Bush administration''s designation of its national strategy as a war on terror highlights the importance of combating terrorism on an international level. Fundamental to this effort is bilateral intelligence-sharing. Intelligence reform efforts to date have focused on improving intelligence-sharing within the U.S. intelligence community. However, critical intelligence can be gained through America''s international partners. This paper assesses the state of bilateral intelligence-sharing relationships and the challenges that need to be overcome.
