DEPARTMENT OF THE NAVYHeadquarters United States Marine CorpsWashington, D.C. 20380-17757 June 1997FOREWORDMarine Corps Doctrinal Publication (MCDP) 2,
,describes the theory and philosophy of intelligence as practicedby the United States Marine Corps. It provides Marines a con-ceptual framework for understanding and conducting effectiveintelligence activities. The Marine Corps’ view of intelligenceis based on our common understanding of the nature of warand on our warfighting philosophy as described in MCDP 1,
discusses the effective use of knowledge aboutthe enemy and the environment in support of military decision-making.
acknowledges that uncertainty pervadesthe battlefield and that our best intelligence efforts can only re-duce, not eliminate, uncertainty.
One of the main aims of this manual is to put intelligenceinto its proper context in relation to other activities of warfighting. The Marine Corps views intelligence as a funda-mental component of command and control that is inseparablefrom operations. The general concepts which apply to effectivecommand and control apply equally to intelligence. This publi-cation, therefore, presumes familiarity with MCDP 6,
Com-mand and Control
, which establishes fundamental doctrine forcommand and control.MCDP 2,
, does not supersede any current doc-trinal publication. It provides the authoritative basis for thesubsequent development of intelligence doctrine, education,training, equipment, procedures, and organization.
affords no specific techniques or procedures for intel- ligenceactivities; rather, it offers broad guidance which requires judg-ment in its application. Other publications in the intelligenceseries of Marine Corps warfighting publications provide spe-cific tactics, techniques, and procedures.Marine Corps intelligence doctrine applies across the fullspectrum of conflict, from peacekeeping or humanitarian assis-tance operations on the one hand to general war on the other.
