2009 DoD OSINT Leadership and Staff Briefings

About the Idea, Briefings & Lectures

In the interest of helping Defense Intelligence catch up with state of the art thinking on Open Source Intelligence (OSINT), the below two briefings have been created and made available to USD(I) and DIOSPO.

They are also being made available to all military attaches, who are being invited by a European government to plan for and attend a global multinational information-sharing and sense-making conference in Europe in November 2010.

PPT (18 Pages): 2009 DoD OSINT Staff Briefing

The leadership briefing would not have been possible in its present focused form without the direction of Dr. Joseph Markowitz, himself the longest serving director of the Community Open Source Program Office (COSPO) and also the author of the Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) elements of the Defense Science Board (DSB) reports bearing on the urgency of Defense needs for OSINT not available from the Open Source Center (OSC) or any other US IC entity.

Very scary stuff. The bottom line is that for the sake of enhancing national security and national competitiveness, the U.S. Government, with approval from the highest levels, funded the wholesale introduction into U.S. citizenship of both Nazi scientists and Nazi participants in genocidal programs who were viewed in many cases as “essential” to our anti-Communist endeavors. The loss of perspective among selected senior intelligence and policy officials, and the long-term influence of this program on our obsession with Communism, give one pause.
