The OSINT Marketplace will not fully develop until we constrain the corruption within the military-intelligence-industrial complex that substitutes “butts in seats” with clearances and precioius little else to offer, for tangible substance that can be easily shared across all boundaries.  Butts in seats are a waste of time-energy.  We must also stop paying more than once for anything, which requires a coherent requirements system, harmonzied contracting–we cannot even get one agency to have one OSINT contracting officer uber alles–and an OSINT “cloud” repositiory.

This slide, less the bulls-eye that still does not exist, was created by the Collection Requirements & Evaluation Staff (CRES) of the Directorate of Intelligence (DI) at the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), in the mid to late 1990's.  It is still more or less on target, which should give the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) something to think about–MASINT is a bust, HUMINT is inept, and OSINT is underfunded.  Time for leadership.
