Reference: Intelligence Community Directive (ICD) Number 206 Source Requirements for Disseminated Analytic Products

This is an interesting reference but it fails to deal with the core problem: the national and defense intelligence communities are not providing enough useful credible information or intelligence (sense-making) to the combatant commanders and the company commanders.  Neither national nor defense intelligence are structured to actually support policy makers or acquisition managers on a day to day basis.  The entire national and defense intelligence structures are stagnant right where it matters most: discovering, discriminating, distilling, and delivering the cream from all sources in all languages to the people putting their lives on the line.  It is not working!
