The focus of this discussion is U.S. individuals who have been charged and/or convicted of disclosing U.S. classified information to foreign adversaries or the media. To complete the discussion this week, students will need to (1) identify an individual who has been charged and/or convicted of disclosing U.S. classified information, (2) discuss the events surrounding the individual (ex. who is the individual, what was the individual charged and/or convicted of, to whom was the information disclosed, etc.), and apply the MICE acronym (Money, Ideology, Compromise/Coercion, and Ego) from the assigned reading this week (Charney & Irvin, 2016) to analyze what was the individual’s motivation for engaging in the disclosure. Please note students are highly encouraged to select an individual for whom they do not know much about. Doing so will provide a greater learning experience as opposed to focusing on an individual that a student is fully knowledgeable about.
