Wow, thats some pretty poor 'slangish' english. You might not get very many decent responses by not writting even somewhat properly.

Anyway, I recall that there was a suggestion to make "Global Scouts", military officers who would go in country for the long term, years at a time, learning the customs, lay of the land, local issues, etc etc. That would be a good step towards improving the 'on the ground' human intelligence.

What makes this guy a member of Delta?

Also, Delta isn't an intelligence gathering group. They're simply special operations (as opposed to special forces even). Should it make a difference that he's "delta"?

Delta can do many things, they are flexible, they can do recon before attacking a target or providing coordinates to other assets to either capture or destroy the target. this guy is more who gets the job done instead of whining or crying about this or that.

Delta is absolutely an intelligence gathering group, as well as some of the best shooters in the world. After selected, they go through 6 months of spycraft training facilitated by the Farm, just as CIA field agents do. Every D-boy is a NOC. The best of the best.

I think the most useful thing about Delta experience is that it is all real world, as opposed to some think-tank rendition of reality far removed, and firmly grounded in common sense.

The reason why humint doesn't work well for us currently is because the planning and execution has been conducted by those with no real experience with it. To bring Delta in on this is the right thing to do.
