Exclusive: Inside The Pentagon's Idea Factory
A tiny office in the Pentagon employs a handful of military officers, teamed up with outside contractors, to study the future.
The jargony official description of the office -- often called the Pentagon's internal think tank -- refers to comparing U.S. "military capabilities" to those of other countries and identifying "emerging or future threats or opportunities for the United States."
The range of subjects includes energy: Future Asian-Pacific Hydrocarbon Demand (1996-2015) [December 1997]; weapons: Role Of High Power Microwave Weapons In Future Intercontinental Conventional War [July 2007]; and Islam: Occultation In Perpertuum: Shi'ite Eschatology And The Iranian Nuclear Crisis [May 2007].

"Is ATS a Pentagon think tank?"
Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
You step out of line, the man come and take you away

It's naive to think that 3 letter types aren't monitering alternative sites; looking for information that may advance their agenda.

Nothing I say could convince anyone that ATS isn't run out of some basement office by the CIA ...
