  1. Military Intelligence Quotes

    For all of you who like to add snazzy quotes at the start of your presentations, how about about dumping The Art of War and using some more original quotes?

    "In the intelligence community I am told that the threat is now called multi-faceted or multi-directional, which actually means that we are not very sure what it is or where it's coming from."

    Field Marshal Peter Inge, Chief of the General Staff, 1994

    "A great part of the information obtained in war is contradictory, a still greater part is false and by far the greatest part is of doubtful character."


    "All the business of war, and indeed all the business of life, is to endeavour to find out what you don't know from what you do."

    Duke of Wellington

    Can anyone think of their own quote that may go on to out live them?
