Sir,

Please give something comprehensive about your Burundi experience.

Dear Colleague,

My report on this is here:

Reference: Open Source Burundi Exercise

However, there are a couple of graphics additional that I offer below

Steele, Robert. “Open Source Intelligence: Executive Overview,” Perth, AU: Conference on Open Source Intelligence, Keynote Presentation, October 16, 1998 Graphic 23:

Steele, Robert. “Open Source Intelligence & Relevant Information: Executive Briefing (CINC Brief),” Tampa, FL: US Special Operations Command, Personal for General Peter Schoomaker, Commander-in-Chief, 1997, Graphic 5:

What is really really important here are two things:

First, that I knew who knew, and CIA did not.

Second, that I had their emails and telephone numbers and was able to mobilize  their fullest professional efforts overnight.

OSINT is HUMINT. OSINT is about knowing who knows and being able to create NEW knowledge TAILORED to the question OVERNIGHT.

CIA still does not get that and neither do the military intelligence nodes.

In passing here are four core lectures for the Italian military, which honored me by translating my first book into Italian with a Foreword by a past president of Italy.
