Definition Edit

Circular intelligence is

information that is reported as an unconfirmed fact or assessment that is subsequently repeated in another agency or analyst's assessment as a true report. The first agency or analyst sees it in someone else's report and seizes on it as independent proof that his or her own information has been confirmed by another source.[1]
