From the CEO of Forward Observer:

I’m a former soldier, Intelligence NCO, and contractor.  I spent nearly a decade in the U.S. Intelligence Community before leaving in 2012 over concerns of where the country was headed.  I founded Forward Observer in 2016 as a way to track Far Left and Far Right groups involved in “Low Intensity Conflict” in the United States.  I’d never thought I’d have to use my skills in a domestic situation, yet here we are.

Low Intensity Conflict is the model for the current unrest that will result in greater disruption and violence, likely lasting well into the decade. It exists below conventional war, but above routine, peaceful competition. It’s the “gray area” between war and peace.

We’ve undoubtedly entered a new period of conflict and instability.  Luckily, intelligence reduces uncertainty about the future.  Our readers understand the value of intelligence, and they rely on our analysis to keep them informed about the future.  I hope you will too.

– Samuel Culper
