Robert Steele, CeO of Earth Intelligence network, will be visiting Norway 15. – 23. Mars to deliver educational lectures on needed changes in national investments so as to promote peace and prosperity for all. Among his talking points:
– The military must adapt to cover all ten high-level threats to any country, not only the single military threat. National defense must address poverty, disease, environmental degradation, trade in women & children as swell as organized refugee trafficking, and organized crime far beyond the ability of the police.
– This requires both a Nordic Grand Strategy, and a Nordic Open Source Agency that redirects the craft of intelligence away from spies that promote war, toward open sources that nurture peace and prosperity for all.
– Such an agency would have assured the rejection of Norway’s participation in the destruction of Libya. Nordic collaboration in US wars in the Middle East, and Nordic tolerance of regime changes on Syria and Libya, is what has opened the flood of millions of refugees to Europe – they do not reach the far away USA.
Steele (64), a former CIA spy who now champions open source everything, was one of the first to be assigned the terrorist target full-time in the 1980’s. He went on to create the Marine Corps Intelligence Center where he discovered that 90% of what he needed to do strategic, policy, operational, and technical intelligence was not secret, not online, not in English, and not known to the US secret intelligence community
His most recent books are Intelligence for Earth: Clarity, Diversity, Integrity, & Sustainability (2010), and The Open Source Everything Manifesto: Transparency, Truth, & Trust (2012).
In April 2016 Steele was invited to lecture at the Royal Danish Defence College, and also visited Oslo for informal talks. His Nordic Manifesto and other materials are free online.
While his already-arranged lectures are private in nature, he welcomes additional invitations to speak at no cost to anyone, and is easily available for interviews.
