HUBBARD COMMUNICATIONS OFFICE
An Intelligence Officer gives summaries. Never estimates of the situation.
Intelligence should give facts and reports. DATA is what is needed. Example “All info concerning Joe Jones has been turned over to prosecution for action”.. “Our investigation on Tom Smith has revealed that he is a communist and was arrested 5 times for various crimes…we are taking further action” etc..etc.. etc. “That and that alone is what is needed, not alarming reports such as how bad it all is in Willabaloo. This is an effort to give an estimate of situation and is enturbulative.
Suppression occurs when generalities are entered into reports. Evaluations are generalities.Forwarding of false information is a very high crime.Failure to forward information is an equally high crime.
An Intelligence Officer collects data files by name and area, writes summaries and forwards the data to the correct terminal. This person should never at any time consider themselves capable of giving an estimate of the situation. This is done by the head of the division.
The standard actions of intelligence are:
1. Predict the trouble before it occurs by filing, cross indexing, investigation of areas, statistics and other means.
2. Investigate for crimes, the individuals who are creating trouble.
This is standard. 1 2 3 action and should not be deviated from. The maxim is…”when under attack…attack”. The point is…even if you don‘t have enough data to win the case…still attack… LOUDLY. Reason is, it is only those people that have crimes that will attack us, and they will soon back off for fear of being found out when attacked back.
Filing is a very important action in Intelligence. You file by name and area. If you get a report that has 10 names on it…10 copies are made and a copy placed in each file. Areas can be kept by country, state, town etc., depending how large an intelligence unit you are handling.
Intelligence requires a very critical eye. No evaluation, generalities or estimates. Just data, summaries and specifics.
