Abstract
This paper discusses how political, military, economic, social, information, infrastructure, physical environment and time factors affect human intelligence operations within Pakistan against the terrorist group Lashkar-e-Tabia. This paper goes on to identify the conditions, effect and response of previously mentioned factors while conduction human intelligence operations. By developing specifically tailored human intelligence responses to the conditions and effects a human intelligence team will be able to use the environment and population to amplify any existing advantage. When no advantage exists to the human intelligence collector the response will dictate how the human intelligence team will be able to reduce any disadvantage or if possible turn that disadvantage into the collector’s advantage.
