SPECIAL: The Death of Clandestine HUMINT in the Digital Age

Collective Intelligence, Corruption, Earth Intelligence, Ethics, Government, Idiocy, Ineptitude

ROBERT STEELE: Afer nine years as a spy including three back-to-back tours overseas with five times the regional recruiting and production record, in 1988 I conceptualized the modern discipline of Open Source Intelligence (OSINT). In 1993 Alvin Toffler built a chapter around me, “The Future of the Spy” and called me “the rival store” but he did not realize I remained an “all-source” intelligence professional. In 2000 I published ON INTELLIGENCE: Spies and Secrecy in an Open World and in 2002 THE NEW CRAFT OF INTELLIGENCE: Personal, Public, & Political. As I document in my latest book, REINVENTING INTELLIGENCE: 30 Years in the Wilderness, from 1989-2019 I have sought to reform US intelligence by placing clandestine human and covert technical collection in the context of a much larger open source human collection ecology that also provides 100% processing of all information collection (instead of 1% as we have  today) while also proviiding strategic, operational, tactical, and technical decision-support to EVERY level across EVERY government function (instead of 4% to the few top commanders and nothing for everyone else).

Next week I am sending my new book to  President Donald Trump, copied to General Secretary Xi Jinping and President Vladimir Putin via their Ambassadors to the USA, and to the US Secretaries of State and Defense and the Acting DNI, D/CIA, and D/DIA.

China and Russia are interested in my ideas. Is the USA to lose me? I hope not.

You Say You Want a (Russian) Revolution?

His key takeway: “There is no parity between Russia and the United States in such fields as air-defense, hypersonic weapons and, in general, missile development, to name just a few fields – the United States lags behind in these fields, not just in years but in generations [italics mine].”

Death by screen — thank you, stupid Navy, thank you stupid Northrup Grumman.  Thank you worthless Inspectors General and worthless  Congress.

Collision Course

When the USS John S. McCain crashed in the Pacific, the Navy blamed the destroyer’s crew for the loss of 10 sailors. The truth is the Navy’s flawed technology set the McCain up for disaster.

Preliminary impression:  complete whitewash, no one goes to jail. Crucifies FBI on process error and leadership failure but effectively refuses to condemn anyone with the exception of Ohr.  Ohr takes the bullet.

Mongoose

No direct knowledge. The plot thickens.  Has Fiona Hill ever been properly investigated?  Was her background investigation compromised by internal traitors? Tip of the hat to American Intelligence Media for this overview with documentation.

Fiona Hill is a fake Russia expert from Harvard who was planted to destabilize Russia-American relations for the Pilgrims Society

She worked for George Soros — this is documented.

Rethinking National Security: CIA and FBI Are Corrupt, but What About Congress? 

The national security state should actually be engaged in national security. Its size and budget should be commensurate with what it actually does, nothing more. It should not be roaming the world looking for trouble and should instead only respond to actual threats. And it should operate with oversight.

BREAKING: IG Report Out, FBI Lacks Data Integrity and Confidential Information Communications Security

Hot off the presses:

Audit of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Management of its Confidential Human Source Validation Processes

Bottom line: FBI continues to be an abysmal disgrace, lacking in data integrity as well ascommunications security, names no names. As with its now discredited forensics lab, its basic investigative data integrity can be challenged.  Still needed: a financial audit of all payments to all confidential sources including particularly  those not resident in the USA.

Note: The Durham FISA Report, expected out on 11 December, is the one that is supposed to have the criminal indictments of, at a minimum, six people.

Robert Steele: 31 Years After I Said So, Army Gets a Clue on Open Source and Cyber … UPDATE 1: DefDog Comments

Commercial threat intelligence has become a key Army tool

What we find is, we go out and we buy commercial threat intel,” Lt. Gen. Stephen Fogarty, the head of Army Cyber Command, said Sept. 16 at an event hosted by the Association of the U.S. Army.

In addition, the recently retired head of Special Operations Command, Gen. Raymond “Tony” Thomas has described how intelligence will begin with open source and then officials will fill in the gaps with information from classified channels. The proliferation of technology and information sharing capability is “forcing us to reconsider the art and science of intelligence,” he said in August 2018.

Zero Hedge: Will McCabe Bring the FBI Down With Him? Will McCabe’s Indictment and the DoJ Memo Exonerate Mike Flynn?

Will McCabe Bring The FBI Down With Him?

Authored by Daniel John Sobieski via The American Thinker blog,

The DoJ’s rejection of a last-ditch appeal by the legal team representing fired FBI Director Andrew McCabe and the recommendation by federal prosecutors that charges actually be filed against the documented liar, leaker, and co-conspirator in the attempted coup against duly elected President Donald Trump puts the deep state in a face-to-face confrontation with a potential legal Armageddon. An indictment will leave McCabe with no excuse for not carrying out his threat to bring them all down with him.
