To develop evidence necessary to prove the elements of the offense for espionage, counterintelligence investigations often focus on five critical areas: 1) motive and reward; 2) collection (the information passed and how it was obtained); 3) tradecraft used by subject to conceal his/her activities; 4) contacts (the foreign power on whose behalf the espionage is being conducted and the agents of that country) and communication methods; and 5) travel. Using these five critical areas as a framework, discuss the espionage activities of Aldrich Ames and the evidence that eventually led to his arrest and prosecution.
