By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
For more than a year I have been arguing that the Western world lacks a true understanding of the terror threat.
Now, finally, NATO is discussing the appointment of an assistant director of intelligence. They are finally thinking about creating a position specifically designed to confront ISIS.
There are those who are in favor and those who are still opposed to creating this new position. It is not yet clear whether NATO will indeed create the position and allot for the clout and the funds and the personnel necessary to create a division to confront ISIS through the establishment of a unified intelligence system.
Should it ever come into existence, the new division must place emphasis on cyber terror, cyber trolls and intel. They will need to get up close and personal in the dark web and watch ISIS very carefully.
One major problem that NATO will confront if this unit were to be created is that the unit will step on the toes of other, non-aligned, nations. That issue will need to be resolved.
