Europe Intel Sharing Will Take Trust

A spike in terrorist attacks in Europe over the past couple of years has reignited the debate over how to improve European intelligence collection and sharing.

The ISIS-claimed terror shooting in Paris last week, which left one police officer dead and at least two others wounded, is just the latest example in a string of terrorist incidents on the continent. The London attack in March that killed a handful of people and left dozens injured, the incident in Nice last July when a terrorist drove a truck through the city’s streets mowing down pedestrians and leaving more than 80 people dead and scores injured, and the Brussels attack last spring that killed more than 30 people exemplify the magnitude of the problem confronting Europe.
