OSINT miscellany

MundoGeo reports that the International Symposium on Open Source Intelligence and Web Mining will be held in Spain. Conference site and call for papers.

Per Andersson discusses the value of open source intelligence.

The US shot down a Iranian UAV near Iraq’s tense Camp Ashraf. Hmmmmmmmm, worrisome.

Good OSINT requires access to blogs. Blocking Blogs reduces the threat by 1 or 2 %. And reduces their troops OSINT knowledge by 30 to 50%.

The difference between intelligence and journalism

Jihadist thread in Pakistan. Also, it seems Hammas has forgotten nothing and learned nothing.

Agence France-Presse reports that Military officials from China and Taiwan will meet face-to-face for the first time in 60 years.

Adam Elkus thinks that Obama has the right strategy for Afghanistan; but is unsure about implementation.

Edit - Mcclatchy has a must read report on the situation in Iraq.
