Summer 2020 Final Assessment
This assessment is worth 30 points. You have until 9pm on 05 August 2020 to answer the question. Email your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org .
The final assessment is electronic and “open-book”. I expect very substantial, well-written paragraphs in traditional essay format (introduction, body paragraphs and conclusions). Your conclusions must be well developed and supported by facts and evidence presented in the body paragraphs of your essay. No citations are required.
As mentioned above, this assessment is OPEN BOOK. I expect that everyone will complete this mid-term assessment with academic honesty and integrity in accordance with the Tulane University Honor Code: http://college.tulane.edu/honorcode.htm

(Must 1: briefly describe the case(s), 2: detail how each potentially impacted the following: a. collection efforts, b. foreign policy, and c. national security (with examples), and 3: briefly discuss whether or not these disclosures are needed oversight to U.S. government intelligence activities)
