Summary/Abstract: The study deals with the dissemination as the last stage of the intelligence cycle. Within this, the most important activity is the product of intelligence remission to legal beneficiaries, to decision makers. So between the producer of intelligence and the intelligence beneficiary a special type of communication is established that has specific features: the intelligence decisional communication. Using the meta-analysis method characteristic elements of this communication process are highilted: procedural intelligence agents (analyst and decision maker), decisional relationship (legal-institutional, asymmetrical, of knowledge/ information), proper feedback. In addition four fundamental normative positions in the intelligence decisional communication are retired: the Kissinger Position, the Scowcroft Position, the Powell Position, and the Rumsfeld Position. These four positions configure and shape the functioning relationship of communication between intelligence producers and major intelligence consumers.
