From the vantage point of homeland security planning, the most important asset available in combating terrorism is the human mind. Out-thinking evil at the strategic level requires; (1) the ability to formulate complex relational models, (2) an awareness and recognition of the critical level variables, (3) an understanding of their influence and interrelation, (4) a determination of the controllable and non-controllable aspects of each variable, (5) the implicational value of such factors as applied to potential terrorist scenarios, and (6) an assessment of the potential consequences of shifts in each variable’s valuation to the overall model. This paper examines the importance of visualization to the strategic planning process and offers a unique method of incorporating multivariate-multidirectional modeling in support of such endeavors.
