Call for Inputs on Two Chapters about Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) and Information Operations (IO)

Call for Inputs on Two Chapters about Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) and Information Operations (IO)

WASHINGTON, March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Robert David STEELE Vivas, international proponent for Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) as the foundation for both modern Information Operations (IO) and the transformation of national intelligence, governance, and foreign policy, has received contracts to write two chapters on OSINT, and seeks international inputs in the immediate near future.

"Dr. Loch Johnson, the dean of American intelligence scholars, has engaged me to write two chapters on OSINT. The first, for the 'Handbook of Intelligence Studies,' will be practical and operational in nature, and will build on my earlier development of the Defense Intelligence Agency, North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and Special Operations Forces OSINT Handbooks.

"The second, for the first volume in a five volume series, the first volume focusing on 'Strategic Intelligence,' will focus on the transformative nature of OSINT-on the manner in which OSINT will change who decides and how, and consequently, will change strategic outcomes over time.

"Although I have been personally active in writing about OSINT for eighteen years, I have also sponsored over 500 speakers and authors on OSINT, and our collected work is easily available at http://www.oss.net/. However, I am acutely aware that our small group has inspired another 25,000 practitioners not known to me, and it is those individuals I wish to reach with this press release.

"It is my deepest hope that all those who have anything to contribute to these two chapters will favor me with a concise communication to my office facsimile, 226-6391 in the 703 area code in the USA, which will lead in turn to electronic exchanges. I hope to hear from all seven tribes of intelligence: government, military, law enforcement, business, academic, non- governmental organizations and media (the ground truth tribe), and citizens, labor unions, and religions (the civil society tribe).

"I am especially interested in individuals who can summarize the OSINT dialog as it has been published in other languages, and as it has been used by countries that may be opposed to the USA, as well as by terrorist groups (Bin Laden being on record as saying that 80% of his intelligence comes from OSINT).

Time is short. I start writing Monday and will post drafts for critical review on Friday."
