Robert Steele, or Robert David STEELE Vivas, is a U.S. Citizen resident in Oakton, Virginia. A former Marine Corps infantry and intelligence officer, he has since 1988 been the foremost international proponent for Open Source Intelligence (OSINT). His biography, and 30,000 pages of information created by over 600 authorities on OSINT, can be found at OSS.Net. He strongly believes in the Wikipedia approach to shared knowledge, and believes that eventually public intelligence will keep secret intelligence honest, and will prevail when unethical elected officials seek to claim secret knowledge that does not in fact exist or that is being misrepresented to pursue an ideological campaign harmful to the people.
