You get the data from the network of your human agents spread across the country and abroad, from your TECHINT (technical intelligence) set-up inside the country and along the international borders, from your interrogation and surveillance of suspects, from your local inquiries and from your interactions with different communities.
Our HUMINT was generally below par, but deficiencies in our HUMINT (human intelligence) coverage used to be made up by our above par TECHINT coverage.
This seems to have been neutralised by bombers. In 26/11 attack alone the technology used across border was VoIP which very few countries can intercept, thanks to US who provided transcripts of VoIP chat to India and live catch called Kasab else we would have been groping in dark again.
The current govt is in total disarray. After 26/11 NIA was formed to investigate terrorism in India the situation of that department is such that it doesn't have a web site (you can't contact them ), and the dept has only 25 staff..!
In one book I had read thatCounter-terrorism has three components: prevention through timely and actionable intelligence, prevention through effective physical security and attrition of the terrorists' capability through successful investigation and prosecution.
The physical security should be so tight that even if intelligence fails or is not up to the mark, we are still able to thwart the terrorists.
All these years Chidambaram and company were busy in proving Hindu terrorism (or saffron) as they call it, and the result is in front of us. As long as we have a governance which believes in communalising terrorism, investigations on the line of vote banks and completely defunct policing we will die death of a pig.
