Agents, how do we get the information we want from the sources who have access to it?

Classic intelligence theory references MICE - Money, Intelligence, Conscience, and Ego. I've recently run across an updated variant:

Material - we have a tangible thing they want (money, coke, hookers).

Ideology - their beliefs are congruous with ours and they want to help us.

Compromise - we find an existing fear (i.e., a secret whose exposure is feared) and leverage it.

Ego - we reinforce (or challenge) their self-worth.

Revenge - we facilitate their need to get back at someone who wronged them.

Coercion - we create a new fear (make them afraid of us, usually) and leverage it.

I thought a handful of the world's air forces had a monopoly on aerial refueling. Not so. Apparently, private midair refueling service is a thing (though good luck finding a Gulfstream modified to take on a fresh load of Jet-A over the North Atlantic). Omega Air Refueling operates a small fleet of air tankers to support Navy and Marine aviation, "as well as Foreign Military or specialized industry R and D projects."

Somehow, this is a Spycraft thing.

[livejournal.com profile] elalyr and I have been working our way through Top Gear on Netflix. A couple of nights ago, we watched the Winter Olympics special, which was eighteen shades of hilarious. The biathlon event that substituted SUVs for skis got me thinking, though. America loves guns. America loves motor sports. Why haven't we combined the two?

I'm thinking... the obvious answer is to combine rally racing with 3-gun. Picture this...

Shooter begins seated at conference table, pistol in holster, car keys in pocket. Rifle and shotgun are secured in the shooter's vehicle. Upon the start buzzer, the shooter must stand, draw, and engage hostile targets while moving to his vehicle. He drives the first half of the course, stopping at a position overlooking a roadblock. He must exit his vehicle with his rifle, take cover (using vehicle or terrain as appropriate), and engage hostile targets at the roadblock. Upon clearing all targets, he re-enters his vehicle, drives past the roadblock and through the rest of the course, and stops at a final shoot house. He then exits the vehicle with his shotgun and clears the shoot house, engaging hostile targets while on the move. Penalty time is added for misses, hitting no-shoot targets, and leaving the course.

Call it the Wheelman Games. Because Spycraft.
