Insights of Intelligence Insiders on (Non-) Sharing Intelligence

Musa Tuzuner, Ph.D
Center for Foreign Policy and Peace Research, Ankara, Turkey

This study surveys the Turkish intelligence community’s (non-) sharing intelligence behavior. The factors affecting failures to share intelligence and now to increase intelligence sharing practices are examined based on the views of Turkish intelligence insiders. These insiders’ views reveal that the complexity of bureaucratic structures, lack of trust, compartmentalization, power, egoism, fear, information groupings, lack of reciprocity and lack of feedback are the causes for non-sharing of intelligence. Policy solutions for shifting from non-sharing toward sharing behaviors is discussed in a new framework including respective government willingness, enhancing capacity of intelligence collection, building intelligence aquariums, creating rules for establishing new intelligence sharing, opening up communications channels, training, and support for sharing culture. This framework argues that policy change should start first at the agency level, then at the community level and finally at the international level.

Mini-Me: Ebola Wrap-Up — Robert Steele on Alex Jones at 6 PM EST Sunday

Who?  Mini-Me?

Who? Mini-Me?

Alex Jones Show

SUMMARY:

At the meta-level, the Ebola crisis is a perfect case study of why the UN (including the out-of-control Specialized Agencies such as the World Health Organization — WHO), the European Union (EU), and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) need their own internal intelligence (decision-support) capabilities, and how corrupt intelligence has become at the Member State level — the US, specifically, lacks intelligence with integrity on Ebola, and no one in the White House or Congress has the intelligence — or the integrity — to see this as “core.”

Marcus Aurelius: Daniel Goure on Needing an Army — Robert Steele on Irresponsible Government

Marcus Aurelius

Marcus Aurelius

I think article below is spot on, but I also don’t think it will matter.  Given the current national trajectory, it will take another Kasserine Pass, another Task Force SMITH, to get America to pay attention to T.R. Fehrenbach (“… young men in the mud. …”), to the eternal truth that the ultimate arbiter of foreign policy and international diplomacy is a man with a rifle and bayonet.  And then, the refresher learning will only be transient.  I hate to be present Santana as an inviolable sage with respect to history, but I’s sure this is one of those cases where he is right. And, in the interim, funds and focus will be diverted to trendy left-wing social issues. …

When America Realizes It Needs the Army, It’ll Need It Really Bad

Owl: Dmitry Orlov on Ebola and Five Stages of Collapse — Financial, Commercial, Political, Social, Cultural

Who?  Who?

Dmitry Orlov on Ebola and the Five Stages of Collapse

Orlov is one of the best futurists writing on society collapse, having witnessed and personally experienced the collapse of the Soviet Union. His book, Reinventing Collapse: The Soviet Experience and American Prospects http://www.amazon.com/Reinventing-Collapse-Experience-American-Prospects/dp/0865716854, is one of the best ever written in the collapse genre and necessary reading for anyone who is interested in this theme.

In 2008 he came up the a taxonomy of collapse, which he says occurs in 5 stages. The full article is here, http://cluborlov.blogspot.com/2008/02/five-stages-of-collapse.html and he has a book on it too.

Below is a summary of his five stages of collapse:

CDC Ebola Guidance Doesn’t Add Up

Mongoose

Mongoose

From an expert observer upset with CDC’s betrayal of the public trust. We believe the US Government should nationalize the patents on Ebola, and radically over-haul CDC as well. The nationalization of the atomic bomb patents provides a precedent.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines published for health care professionals attending to an Ebola, or suspected Ebola, patient, in a hospital or other healthcare setting, recommends a minimum of an N-95 mask during aerosol generating procedures [emphasis added] such as intubation.This recommendation may be dangerously inadequate and raises the specter of not only recklessly endangering health care workers, but also the public at large, undermining confidence in the health care system.

In the 24 hours since I wrote that opening paragraph, and submitted the first version of this article for publication, the Washington Post reported that a health care worker who attended to the Ebola patient in Dallas has since tested positive for Ebola. As further indictment of the dangerous insufficiency of the CDC guidelines, the article had this to say:

Owl: CDC Fraud on Global Scale? The Ebola Bubble… Questioning the Intelligence and the Integrity of “Dr.” Anthony Fauci

Who?  Who?

Who? Who?

So It Begins: the Rush is On to Vaccinate Everyone (Except the.01%) Against Ebola

Future historians may start the clock on when major repression of the people of the world using biologicals began when Dr. Anthony Fauci called for compulsory ebola vaccination, as mentioned here:

“Two days ago, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the U.S. National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told The Canadian Press that it’s “quite conceivable, if not likely” that fast-tracked Ebola vaccines may have to given to entire countries to get the viral outbreak under control (via Modern Healthcare):

“It is conceivable that this epidemic will not turn around even if we pour resources into it. It may just keep going and going and it might require a vaccine.”

“As the epidemic gets more and more formidable and in some cases out of control it is quite conceivable, if not likely, that we may need to deploy the vaccine to the entire country to be able to shut the epidemic down. That is clearly a possibility.” [emphasis added]

Owl: Sheriff Ill After Being Forced to Enter Ebola Apartment — CDC Criminally Irresponsible?

Who?  Who?

Who? Who?

When this gets out in the cop community, it’s going to  be much harder to make them get ebola infected people out of the community:

Breaking: Sheriff’s Deputy Who Was Forced to Enter Ebola Apartment Falls Ill

Phi Beta Iota: We have no direct knowledge but an expert observer tells us that CDC is lying to the President and to DHS when it recommends the N-95 mask that is effective to .3 microns. Ebola, we are told, is now airborne and is at the .08 micron level — roughly one third smaller than the containment offered by the prescribed mask. Is this criminal irresponsibility?  We think so. Below we repeat the health professional’s comment:

I believe CDC and WHO are more concerned with controlling mass hysteria than actual infection control. Once people start fearing the worst, they’ll start exhibiting symptoms. Those will be real enough symptoms, regardless of whether or not there’s a genuine causative agent. Mass “casualties” will overwhelm the system – quick.

It’s also a matter of physics – an N-95 mask, the current CDC and WHO recommendation, is 95% effective on particles .3 microns and larger. Ebola is .08 microns across. Simple. Even so, with 200 million organisms expelled on any given cough, at 5% infiltration, you’ve got 10 million. To infect, you need from 1 to 10 – not one to ten million, but 1 to 10 – period. Odds are pretty good one will get through – in either direction.

But, they’ve distributed N-95 masks and are scared shitless that health care workers are going to refuse to put themselves and their families at risk. We’ve seen plenty of that in west Africa, we’ll see much the same here.
