This is a classic, and it bears mention that the Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) revolution began in the US military.  Here is the human in the loop essence that no computer can create. USDI and D/DIA have chosen to ignore their responsibility for OSINT despite General Tony Zinni's clear cut statement that all that they do now provides “at best” 4% of a commander's needs; General Mike Flynn's documentation of the “irrelevance” of US intelligence in Afghanistan, and the still standing requirements from the Aspin-Brown Commission and others to make OSINT a “top priority” for funding and a “top priority” for DCI (today DNI) attention.
