from older POST:
The thing that really amazed me and was unexpected is the quality of WAR analysis from the Civilian sector.
Our review of the demographics indicate the USA Government on both an official and unofficial levels also recognize this quality.
And I want to call this the "Brilliant civilian sector".
It included the likes of Bill Roggio,Dancho Danchev, Douglas Farah, Ray Robison, team at Counter terrorism Blog, Jamestown, Laura Mansfield, Memri, Site, and many many others.
This "Brilliant sector " is missing part of the "Civilian War Effort Paradigm",
The out put has been voluminous and timely and very high quality.
But it has been aimed at only part of the Demographic.
The American or Western sector.
The "Brilliant sector" recognizes the value of translating terrorist media, documents etc.
And their analysis is top level.
But they seem to have missed the value in translating their analysis into indigenous languages, or Arabic at least.
Very little of the Western analysis reaches the part of the demographic with mud on their war boots and speaking Arabic. That is a very important part of the demographic to influence.
al Qaeda recognizes the value of translating their work into English in their Internet effort.
USA hasn't recognized the value in translating their work into Arabic, yet.
Part of the reason USA is loosing the battle for the hearts and minds.
USA is ignoring the MINDS in that demographic.
al qaeda controling the Internet Paradigm
Memri heard us: and the Civilian Irregular Information Defense Group
"But they seem to have missed the value in translating their analysis into indigenous languages, or Arabic at least."
