In a security environment characterized by regional conflicts, complex political situations, and accompanying constraints, the need for accurate intelligence analysis has never been greater. Though the primary function of intelligence is to understand adversaries, the Air Force intelligence career field has not developed its own cadre of regional and country-specific experts. With this in mind, this thesis addresses the question: "Is Air Force intelligence properly organized and trained to provide regional expertise to theater air component commanders?" The study answers this question by addressing the role, organization, and success of regional intelligence specialists at the theater air component level in major operations since the end of the Cold War, including Operations Desert Storm, Allied Force, Enduring Freedom, and Iraqi Freedom. Next, the thesis examines the current state of intelligence officer training to assess how well it prepares officers to provide regional analysis at the theater air component level. It then delves into how the Air Force intelligence community manages its regional specialists, taking into account promotions, preferred career paths, and organizational culture. The thesis concludes with findings, recommendations, and areas warranting further study. The thesis finds the Air Force has not properly organized and trained its intelligence function to provide regional expertise to theater commanders.
