Seven Generations of Intelligence/IO

What Do We Need to Know

Easy: Where is the army?

Easy: Where are the trenches?

Moderate: How many with what?

Hard: Watch every non-state actor.

Hard: Watch everything on the fly.

Hard: Make sense of billions of bits.

Very Hard: 24/7, 29+ languages and get your own house in order.


Us allied intelligence in iraq l.jpg

Successes

Good last minute exiles sent in with money and forged documents to recruit and observe

Failures

No deep clandestine assets

No new nor firm knowledge on WMD

Intel vacuum allowed WH adventurism

Did not locate Saddaam

Could not keep up with battle forces

Unable to do guerilla/urban intelligence

No peace/reconstruction intelligence

(Note: the US corruption is *amazing*)

US/Allied Intelligence in Iraq


Us allied infoops in iraq l.jpg

Successes

Saved the Oil Fields

Inspired desertions & no fires

Kept most civilians out of fight

Failures

Sunglasses & armor--aid as PSYOP

Girls forced to urinate publicly (rdblks)

Saddam as Elvis (cowboy IO)

Poor impact on Arabs (bye to Al J.)

Poor impact on Europe (bye to Old E.)

Ignored non-Arab Muslims world-wide (Central Asia, South Asia, India, Pakistan, Muslim Africa)

US/Allied InfoOps in Iraq


Net assessment of iraq intel io l.jpg

Net Assessment of Iraq Intel/IO

F Reconstruction intel

F Post-war Guerilla intel

F Global IO Images

F Covert Ops Options

D WMD actual status

C Battle damage

B Kick-off OOB

D Congressional debate

Bottom line: Intel/IO had no coherent strategy, conflicting or absent capabilities and messages, earns a 3 out of a possible 7 on the continuum.

Note: Policy decisions can be said to have handicapped intelligence.
