Example text

But you’re wrong about its being a coincidence. It can’t be. ” “It was just a sentence. ” “It couldn’t have! It’s not the sort of sentence that pops into one’s head. ” “But I tell you I talked to no one this morning. ” “You weren’t with me all the time I paid my check,” he said sharply. ” I shook my head. “I was outside for less than a minute before you joined me. ” “The two men who came in,” he said, the note of exasperation creeping into his voice again. ” “I guess so. Yes, they were. ” “Not many strangers come into the Blue Moon,” he remarked.

Establishing the relevance, credibility, and inferential [probative] force of evidence is just as important in intelligence analysis as it is in law. During fact investigation in law, as well as in intelligence investigations, hypotheses are generated as explanations for what is being observed. The generation of hypotheses requires imaginative reasoning mixed with critical reasoning. New hypotheses are put to use in generating new lines of inquiry and potential evidence. One criterion for assessing the merit of a new hypothesis concerns how well it assists the analyst in generating new and productive lines of inquiry that would not have been generated from other existing hypotheses.
