Article name

I'd have assumed from the title that this was about the intelligence of humans, not human-source intelligence (HUMINT). Maybe a different title, like "Human-sourced intelligence", or some such? J. Noel Chiappa 18:59, 6 May 2008 (CDT)

I can live with a change, although this is the most common name in the field. "Human-source intelligence" (as opposed to sourced) is used. Since it generally is called HUMINT, and I have a number of related articles to port, if we define it as human-source here, I have no real problem. Question: do I need to set up redirects for the common acronyms/abbreviations such as HUMINT, CI (counterintelligence), MASINT, etc.? Howard C. Berkowitz 19:02, 6 May 2008 (CDT)
Yes, I would definitely advise doing so. Lots of redirects help prevent creation of duplicate articles (which are a pain in the kafoozie once they exist - easier to stop them before they can start). J. Noel Chiappa 19:15, 6 May 2008 (CDT)
