Graphic: Full Spectrum Human Intelligence (HUMINT)

Click to Enlarge

Human Intelligence (HUMINT) no longer exists as a serious craft in the USA.  The Clandestine Service, a few exceptions not-with-standing relies almost completely on hand-outs from foreign liaison services who know the limits of American historical and cultural savoire faire, and the depth of American naivete.  In the Department of Defense (DoD) the current clandestine training has been described as “push-ups done silently.”  Across the government, the human brain and the inate value of the human being is at an all-time low and there appears to be no one of any leadership standing actually willing to demand that we get HUMINT right.
