Robert David Steele joins James to discuss an array of issues, including Washington’s wasteful relationship in a flawed intelligence process, the CIA and the media, healthcare, education, the “wars” on drugs and terror, and the probable “drills” that transpired in Newtown and Boston.
Mr. Steele is a former CIA case officer, Marine officer, creator of the Marine Intelligence Network, and he has published, authored, or edited nine books, establishing him as perhaps the foremost authority on intelligence and information operations.
Yet Steele is also the strongest critic of the US intelligence community and an advocate of open source or public intelligence. Steele’s crusade for open source intelligence was recently profiled by author Nafeez Ahmed in the UK Guardian.
Steele holds degrees from Muhlenberg College, Lehigh University, The University of Oklahoma, and the Naval War College. His latest book is titled, The Open Source Everything Manifesto: Transparency, Truth, and Trust. He is the foremost reviewer of non-fiction titles in close to 100 categories at Amazon.com. Steele’s websites are Public Intelligence Blog and oss.net.
