Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Freedom of Information in the Age of Terrorism: The Mosaic Theory in Practice
by Cooper, Harry R., Ph.D., Capitol Technology University, 2018, 173; 10902463
Abstract (Summary)

The premise for this qualitative grounded theory study involved identifying how it is becoming easily more mineable for critical pieces of data. The purpose of this grounded theory study was to identify what specific tools or tool sets make an experiment testing the mosaic theory of intelligence successful. Material analyzed in this study not only identified the specific tools or tool sets, but also produced a wide variety of themes that allowed for the data to be dissected further to answer many questions. The study identified themes affecting such topics as individuals best suited for intelligence work, complexity of finding certain pieces of data, and other factors. Additionally, the study generated some additional avenues for future research into a topic that has until recently remained in the purview of the government.
