Light in the Heart of Darkness
Issue No. 1
US intelligence needs to be reinvented and transformed. Covert Action (clandestine or black ops) has come to mean "dirty tricks." Tighter oversight and accountability with improved end results are required. Accountability boards are not enough. One still has to measure the failed Covert Action intelligence.
Issue No. 2
No nation-state currently polices transnational crime, which is a growing threat. Failure to provide adequate Human Intelligence (HUMINT) is a true weakness in the USA system. Information is crucial to diplomatic and military success.
Most intelligence now comes from Open Source, so an increase in HUMINT is the quickest route to improvement. Senator Jay Rockefeller, Chairman of Select Committee on Intelligence claims congressional oversight has increased about 100% since 9/11, but there is always room for more.
Issue No. 3
The shadow of the Shadow Government, including domestic spying and assassinations, needs to be revealed to the American people and the world so we can finally heal. We must take responsibility for that shadow, including national and global discrimination and exploitation.
Issue No. 4
As of this writing, SB 1959 (HB 1950) threatens to annihilate the First Amendment. Free speech, the right to assembly, and freedom of the press will be over. It will be illegal to disagree with government policy, even with patriotic dissent. Our Constitution is under attack.
We have prospered as mega-consumers of the global pie at the expense of disenfranchised others for too long, and need a common and harmonious survival strategy, at home and abroad. A truly humane and spiritual approach is required to heal the split between our paranoias and our human sense of the sacred. We need to find the heart of darkness.
Final statements on crucially important historical events and hidden agendas are probably not forthcoming due to interminable obfuscation. But these wounds don't heal without resolution.
Issue No. 5
A serious consequence, the breakdown in credibility between the U.S. government and its citizenry, needs to be addressed, as well as increasing militarization of police and unwarranted surveillance of US citizens.
The breakdown of domestic relations is a serious issue, perhaps concealing further manipulations. Those hunting the truth continue to press for disclosure from all knowledgeable sources. The Osborne Ultimatum deals with national and transnational crimes. Our ultimatum is the U.S. government has to change, period.
Have we met the enemy and found it is us, in our complacency? Have we inadvertently relinquished our passion for freedom and justice, much less peace? Power can only be gained at another's expense; prosperity can be shared. We must reject manipulation by fear and greed, trading rights for so-called safety.
Fear is being used against us to promote otherwise unacceptable domestic and global policies. When you no longer fear, you rediscover your active compassion, beyond the myriad cultural illusions.
Perhaps the light cannot defeat the darkness, but surely we can hold the balance of power with moral courage against the evil that men do. Public intelligence in the public interest is the way we restore the Constitution, save the Republic, and preserve the Earth and humanity with survival technology. What we need is more intelligent intelligence -- both for our nation and ourselves.
was a spymaster for the CIA. James Bond he’s not, but then neither is anyone else, for Bond is portrayed in overlapping roles as both agent and officer. Case Officers function more like spy managers over independent contractors (agents, assets and recruits), overseeing select operations within their respective specialties. They are deployed periodically outside Langley as Field Officers.
HUMINT: Humans Provide the Best Intelligence
Leutrell M. Osborne, Sr. of Annapolis, MD,
Operations include three types: 1) Intelligence, or collection of information, 2) Counter Intelligence (CI) to prevent or stop foreign intrusion; and, 3) Covert Action (CA). Other CIA activities include analysis and projections. Osborne’s specialty was and still is CI – counter intelligence.
Intelligence is one form of control system. Other control systems on the minds of large populations include education (controls behavior), money (controls wealth), law (controls authority), politics (controls national will), economy (controls wealth), history (controls beliefs), psychology (controls thinking), philanthropy (controls opinion), medicine (controls health), religion (controls spiritual beliefs), media / propaganda (controls culture, opinion), and continuity of succession (controls power).
CIA is not the only intelligence agency, but it is deployed by and reports to the U.S. President. There are now 16 intelligence collection agencies (IC) coordinated by the DNI. They include military intelligence, information operations (IO), satellite and electronic surveillance (SIGINT), science intelligence, even domestic spying and homeland security. "Law enforcement in the USA has to change and acquire some of the attributes of intelligence work. That's why FBI SAs are now going to CIA for training. That's why USA is fighting dirty tricks, aka CA, aka terrorism, formerl y known as secret para-military warfare."
“For the record,” Osborne says, “the continued preoccupation with reducing vulnerabilities is costly and just the opposite of what the Osborne Ultimatum recommends. We recommend more and improved HUMINT. Intelligence is a property of human beings.”"When did the DNI's new leadership start determining that we had to give up rights so we can protect a vulnerability in our nation-state's security? How about suggesting that the DNI send a message out to the agencies and departments to do a better and stronger job at conducting Human Intelligence collection operations? We just might find out who and what the adversaries are doing. Thus, we don't have to give up our rights." Osborne has developed a Freedom Program to "counter those activities reducing freedoms, including dirty tricks such as Cointel Pro."
