CIA runs all-source analytic competition for universities — neither the Open Source Center nor Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) are anywhere to be found.
Covert Operation WC Wins High Honors at CIA Tri-State Intelligence Simulation Phi Beta Iota: This was probably a variation of the superb Mid-Career Course (CIA’s mini-war college) analytic exercise but lacking the meat that is to be found in the Mid-Career Course: the opportunity to learn that walking around and talking to PEOPLE is what fills in the gaps and leads to a more complete view. Also lacking here, as it is in the Mid-Career Course, is any tutorial on analytic tradecraft, or any reference to external legal ethical human, online, and analog sources that generally have the 80% or more of the knowledge that CIA is simply not able to access because of its secrecy blinders.
Deja vu, indeed.
