For those in the OSINT world, the Military Times had a piece called “America’s silent warriors look to up their game on social media.” The article, at http://www.militarytimes.com/story/military/2016/03/02/votel-socom-social-media/81210372/?from=global&sessionKey=&autologin= , is illustrative of the recent OSINT obsession with social media. An unanswered, and frankly unbroached, question is whether other OSINT areas are being neglected or downgraded because of the attention being lavished on this single area of research. Is monitoring of social media always the best way to obtain the information advantage.
