- That was a semi-facetious remark, but I can dig up material on Islamic hadithic concepts. Unfortunately, what I have is mostly hard copy.

You might find intelligence collection management#Ratings by the Collection Department interesting as a comparable methodology. Howard C. Berkowitz 22:56, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
