In order to stay as current and informed as possible of both recent events and all other background knowledge in Syria, we wanted to provide a few resources that we find to be credible and on-point. In the intelligence community, this is what is referred to as Open Source intelligence (OSINT)—publically available and overtly collected information.
OSINT is great for getting background knowledge on a particular topic, keeping current with the latest events happening around the world (think twitter in Abbottabad during UBL raid), or for accessing expert analysis from academics or other ten-pound brains who’ve studied and analyzed various aspects of an issue from multiple angles for years at a time. Keep in mind with OSINT that it’s critical to corroborate any information with other sources, to verify its credibility and accuracy.
