America Needs Special Forces for Open-Source Intelligence | Small Wars Journal

Must Read

The concept of hybrid intelligence was introduced in the first part of a series of articles as an integrative approach to intelligence to respond to hybrid warfare. 

In this second part, the author defines hybrid warfare as a special forces-like capability that threatens states with multiple types of attacks. Building a hybrid intelligence capability, a sort of special force for intelligence, that provides rapid, technology-driven intelligence-gathering solutions drawing from all sources and methods could provide tremendous value across a range of scenarios. It would require small tactical teams of expert skills, guerrilla-like speed, and a blend of tactics to solve problems by drawing from any and all sources. Training for hybrid intelligence could include specialized training based on specialties such as technical engineers, open-source research, or product management, and would require adaptability, flexibility, and technical knowledge to succeed. A hybrid intelligence capability could be developed in various locations within the US government, such as the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the special forces, or as a new capability or an extension of existing ones.
