The Brahimi Report did not seek to address the organic intelligence collecton,
processing, and analysis needs of the deployed forces, these will be discussed
in the next chapter in general terms.

The Brahimi Report recommendatons have not been implemented to the
fullest extent possible. This report contnues to demand more atenton.

STRATEGIC INTELLIGENCE SUSTAINABILITY

28

A concise but supplementary treatment of selected Brahimi Report
recommendatons from an intelligence (decision-support) perspectve is
provided at The Brahimi Report: Extracts from the Executve Summary, in
PEACEKEEPING INTELLIGENCE: Emerging Concepts for the Future.

Here are some conclusions that draw on the earlier and the large body of works
by others summarized at Phi Beta Iota under Reviews:

1. UNRESPONSIVE. The larger parts of the UN—as litle as two thirds, as
much as four fifhs, are not really responsive to directon from the Secretary
General or any of the bodies (General Assembly, Security Council, Economic and
Social Council) except in the remote sense of budgetary approvals and generic
mandate.

2. UNINFORMED. The informaton collected by most if not all of the UN has
no centralized place where it can be made sense of or shared across the UN
System, with other organizatons, or with the Member governments.

3. DISENGAGED. The UN appears to be operatng on automatc pilot right
now, with Members—and among them, a tny handful of the larger natons—
controlling what issues and concerns are placed before the body. The UN and
its elements, despite relatonships with various stakeholders, are in no sense of
the word “connected” to the Eight Tribes or the Internet or Humanity at large.

4. INCOHERENT. Between too many spies filling jobs they are not qualified for,
and too much cronyism, on top of a complete absence of a coherent decision-
support infrastructure such as the Brahimi Report recommends, the UN is
incoherent at the strategic, operatonal, tactcal, and technical levels.

Now, having said all that, I stll consider the UN the single best startng point
for seeking to create what H. G. Wells described in 1936 as a World Brain; what
Quincy Wright called for in 1957, a World Intelligence Center; and what we have
provided to the Secretary General for discussion among Members, a World
Brain Insttute with an embedded Global Game.
