QUESTION: In one comprehensive 6-8 page essay with an intro, thesis statement, body and conclusion, present a research paper on the following:
Discuss Japan and its intelligence organization's relevance to US national security, either in maintaining it or threatening it. This assignment is specifically about the intelligence organization, not the state's military, although that may be a discussion point. I know your first inclination might be to jump to the UK, but I encourage you to expand your horizons with this assignment. Remember to make an argument that you outline in your thesis statement. "Country X's intel organization is a threat (or benefit) to US national security because of x, y and z."
