Strategic Intelligence

Why does this course’s focus on Strategic Intelligence include the basic definitions provided in the Heidenrich article (which primarily deals with estimative (predictive analysis) to support strategy (at the national or military level), but then goes beyond to include strategic collections, strategic counterintelligence, strategic covert action, and Congressional oversight?

Is the content in Heidenrich’s writings too constrained? Why do we need to think about intelligence as it relates to the development of strategy as something more than just analysis? Or do we?
