The U.S. Intelligence Community Wants Disruptive Change as Long as it’s Not Disruptive

,War on the Rocks, January 20, 2016

To change this situation, the intelligence community must get over its now illusory belief that its value-added comes mostly from information to which it alone has access — secrets.

ROBERT STEELE: This is of course what I pointed out from 1988 onwards, publicly leading the Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) revolution from 1992, a revolution that was hijacked and corrupted. The secret world is about expensive technology, not useful thinking. My one regret is that I did not immediately move to create an alternative intelligence community far removed from the secret world.
