Nobody said it better than Francis Bacon, back in 1605: For myself, I found that I was fitted for nothing so well as for the study of Truth; as having a mind nimble and versatile enough to catch the resemblances of things … and at the same time steady enough to fix and distinguish their subtler differences; as being gifted by nature with desire to seek, patience to doubt, fondness to meditate, slowness to assert, readiness to consider, carefulness to dispose and set in order; and as being a man that neither affects what is new nor admires what is old, and that hates every kind of imposture.

A shorter version is the art of being right. More definitions... Crime and Intelligence Analysis Training Ltd. What They Don’t Teach in Detective School. I used to do a series of lectures about the skills I found most lacking in the education of detectives.

What They Don’t Teach in Detective School

The lecture about evaluating the revealed wisdom that pours forth from the Internet was always fun to deliver. One example that I used when I started doing these, was a site that identified the second gunman in the Kennedy assassination — there was Elvis holding a Thompson sub-machine gun on the grassy knoll. It was on the Internet so it must be true. Here is the 13 point check list for evaluating information upon which I based the lecture. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12.

Intelligence Failures

Behind-the-scenes investigations spawned by the Iraq performance as well as the tragedies of September 11, 2001 offer a fleeting window of opportunity to chart and implement much-needed reforms of a beleaguered intelligence community. The intelligence community’s failure to warn with the clarity needed to disrupt the conspiracy of September 11 and its less-than-stellar performance in assessing Iraqi wmd programs highlight both the dangers to security and the demands for strategic intelligence in the twenty-first century. The community can hardly be trusted to do an honest and balanced critique of its performance in the wake of these events.

It comprises numerous intelligence agencies, each with its own set of entrenched interests. Open Source Intelligence OSINT. We need to rethink the distinction between open sources and secrets.

Open Source Intelligence OSINT

Too many policymakers and intelligence officers mistake secrecy for intelligence and assume that information covertly acquired is superior to that obtained openly. Yet, the distinction between overt and covert sources is less clear than such thinking suggests. Open sources often equal or surpass classified information in monitoring and analyzing such pressing problems as terrorism, proliferation, and counterintelligence. Slighting open source intelligence (OSINT) for secrets, obtained at far greater expense when available at all, is no way to run an intelligence community.

Also, we must put to rest the notion that the private sector is the preferred OSINT agent. Tools for creating ideas. Criminal Justice MegaLinks. A New Intelligence Analysis Training Program.
