TOOLS FOR DETERRING TERRORIST TRAVEL (CRS)

A new report issued by the Congressional Research Service describes the various procedures that the U.S. government can use "to prevent individuals from traveling to, from, or within the United States to commit acts of terrorism."

See Legal Tools to Deter Travel by Suspected Terrorists: A Brief Primer, CRS Legal Sidebar, November 16, 2015.

In light of the Paris attacks, CRS also updated its short report on European Security, Islamist Terrorism, and Returning Fighters, CRS Insights, November 16, 2015.


DNI DIRECTIVE ON CONTROLLED ACCESS PROGRAMS

The Director of National Intelligence last month issued a new directive on Controlled Access Programs (CAPs).

CAPs are the Intelligence Community equivalent of what are otherwise called Special Access Programs (SAPs). These are classified programs that involve access restrictions above and beyond ordinary classification controls. CAPs include compartmented intelligence programs, but are not limited to them.

The new directive, Intelligence Community Directive 906, establishes the policy framework for management and oversight of Controlled Access Programs. The directive itself is unclassified.
