Emotional intelligence and overseas intelligence go hand in hand.  People need to understand the differences between other cultures and their own.  There can sometimes be a big cultural difference that limits to emotional intelligence that can apply to overseas intelligence.

The subquestions for this question would be almost identical to the subquestions for the question you have asked about the relative importance of emotional intelligence and overseas intelligence.  Basically, you are having to figure out some way to determine how much of an impact each of these things has on Homeland Security.  This is very difficult (as in the last two subquestions I gave for that other question) because it is very hard to know what factors cause what results.

One subquestion that would apply here that is different from the other question is "Might overseas intelligence rely on emotional intelligence and vice versa?"  In other words, a person who is gathering or analyzing overseas intelligence surely needs to have some emotional intelligence to do his/her job.  At the same time, all the emotional intelligence in the world will not help if there is no overseas intelligence to apply it to.
