Gulf Nations Seek Expanded Intelligence Capabilities

Gulf Cooperation Council members have been seeking expanded intelligence capabilities for years.

Middle Eastern nations are now considering a host of US- and other foreign-made intelligence planes, a market expected to experience growing sales in the coming years, according to experts.
