The future of OSINT is M4IS2.

The future of Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) is Multinational, Multifunctional, Multidisciplinary, Multidomain Information-Sharing & Sense-Making (M4IS2).

The following, subject to the approval of Executive and Congressional leadership, are suggested hueristics (rules of thumb):

Rule 1: All Open Source Information (OSIF) goes directly to the high side (multinational top secret) the instant it is received at any level by any civilian or military element responsive to global OSINT grid.  This includes all of the contextual agency and mission specific information from the civilian elements previously stove-piped or disgarded, not only within the US, but ultimately within all 90+ participating nations.

Rule 2: In return for Rule 1, the US IC agrees that the Department of State (and within DoD, Civil Affairs) is the proponent outside the wire, and the sharing of all OSIF originating outside the US IC is at the discretion of State/Civil Affairs without secret world caveat or constraint.  OSIF collected by US IC elements is NOT included in this warrant.

2000 Chitumbo (UN) The Role of Open Source Information in Enhancing Nuclear Transparency (International Atomic Energy Agency)

Historic Contributions, Peace Intelligence

Few people have a proper appreciation for the security value of Open Source Intelligence (OSINT).  It is the ONLY form of decision-support that can be shared with ANYBODY, and therefore it is the easist foundation for establishing a common view of the first 80% where it is easy to agree, and of the final 20% where more difficult and nuanced dialog must take place.  The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) continues to respect the needs of developing nations for nuclear energy, the fears of varied nations with respect to nuclear munitions, and the value of OSINT in addressing both sides of the nuclear coin.
