S ince the early 1990s I have been researching historical and contemporary interactions between American anthropologists and military and intelligence agencies. I have relied heavily on documents released under the Freedom of Information Act, interviews, archival research, published research, and published work to gather information documenting how anthropologists have interacted with agencies like the CIA, FBI, NSA, and the Pentagon. My writings on interactions between anthropologists and military and intelligence agencies can mostly be split into two categories: publications examining the surveillance and harassment of scholars engaging academic or political activism challenging the status quo's interests as protected by the FBI and other agencies, and publications examining anthropologists' willing and unwitting contributions to military and intelligence agencies.

However, after the 1979 Iranian Revolution deposed the Shah, Ayatollah Khomeini deemed the nuclear program "un-Islamic" and ordered it terminated.
As part of its protective responsibilities, the United States Secret Service has long held the view that the best protective strategy is prevention. The goal of the Secret Service's threat assessment efforts is to identify, assess, and manage persons who have the interest and ability to mount attacks against Secret Service protectees. After the completion of the Secret Service's first operationally-relevant study on assassins and near-assassins (i.e., the Exceptional Case Study Project) in 1998, the agency created the National Threat Assessment Center (NTAC). The mission of NTAC is to provide guidance on threat assessment, both within the Secret Service and to its law enforcement and public safety partners. Through the Presidential Threat Protection Act of 2000, Congress formally authorized NTAC to provide assistance in the following functional areas: Research on threat assessment and various types of targeted violence.
