This Supplementary provides a sample global survey of national security and intelligence agency outreach, commentary and critique. Each short entry demonstrates to varying degrees elements of the four domains discussed in Chapter 1: the operational (degrees of openness and accountability); the epistemological (the extent and focus on forms of security intelligence gathered); the ethical (consciousness of operational compliance with legal and state/international laws); and the existential (including statement of current threat, threat prioritisation and the anticipation of future internal/national, regional and global threats).
