APOLOGY. When we changed providers for we lost some of the links. I have this somewhere.  It was hugely substantive and part of my effort to redirect the US intelligence community but I was easily shut down by JCS, Big Army, and CIA, among others.

Free items that are still online include:

1991: Steele, Robert. “Intelligence Support for Expeditionary Planners,” Marine Corps Gazette, September 1991, pp. 73-79. and Steele, Robert. “Applying the ‘New Paradigm’: How to Avoid Strategic Intelligence Failures in the Future,” American Intelligence Journal, Autumn 1991, pp. 43-46.

1990: Steele, Robert. “Intelligence in the 1990’s: Recasting National Security in a Changing World,” American Intelligence Journal, Summer/Fall 1990, pp. 29-36.

1989: Gray, Al (Ghost-Written by Robert Steele), “Global Intelligence Challenges in the 1990’s,” American Intelligence Journal, Winter 1989-1990, pp. 37-41.

Consider my new book (2019):

REINVENTING INTELLIGENCE: 30 Years in the Wilderness

I am sending copies to the White House and a few others, but expect no response.  In a really weird way, it looks like I am going to have to run for President in order to achieve electoral, governance, and intelligence reform. It’s an all or nothing proposition.

Always interested in consulting. I know how to fix it all for the greater good. We do not lack for intelligence, we lack for integrity and imagination.

USMC 1991 National Intelligence Topics FIXED

Ethics, Military, Peace Intelligence

In 1991 the Marine Corps sought to change the National Intelligence Topics (NIT) away from their heavy emphasis on the Soviet Union, China, and North Korea, and toward the emerging threats in the Third World, including non-state actors. The effort died in staffing. This is the sole surviving documentation from that effort.
