Where Washington prepares its military diplomats ...

12
As a duty of the diplomatic service, I quite often had to communicate with representatives of various special services of the United States, including with military diplomats. In Yemen, at the very beginning of my international activities, at one of the diplomatic receptions, I crossed with one of the assistants to the US military attache and asked him with interest how he became what he became. He did not leave the answer and told me in some detail what he had to go through. I conveyed this conversation to our military attache, to which Colonel Ovcharenko, barely hiding a smile, discouraged me: “He told you his legend.”


Now I can tell myself where the US military diplomats are coming from.

Where Washington prepares its military diplomats ...

United Base Anacostia-Bolling (Federal District of Columbia)


All employees of US military attaches, as well as Russia, are military intelligence officers. First of all, they are undergoing general intelligence training in the centers of the United States Intelligence Community. Here, in addition to closed curricula, university academic curricula are used, which can serve as the basis of curricula for intelligence training.



In addition, general training of intelligence officers is carried out at the Joint Military Intelligence Training Center (JMITC).

Officers who have successfully completed general intelligence training are sent to the Joint School of Military Attaches (JMAS), which is located at the Anacostia-Bolling Joint Base (JBAB) located in the Federal District of Columbia. Here they assimilate the specifics of undercover work as part of diplomatic and consular missions for further service in the System of Military Attaches (DAS).







In general, JMAS trains employees of five services of the Ministry of Defense and employees from among its civilian personnel who are members of the Defense Intelligence Attache Service (DAS) of the United States. It is noteworthy that together with the staff of the DAS courses, their spouses are also studying at the courses at JMAS.

As for the National Intelligence University (NIU), this university is a kind of institution for raising the level of skill of military intelligence officers that have already taken place.

It is noteworthy that the nomenclature of languages ​​from the promising list of the US Department of Defense is divided into three categories, all including positions for 40.

The first category is languages ​​and dialects, in specialists with knowledge of which there is an urgent need:

1) are baluchi
2) Yemeni Arabic,
3) Levantine dialect of Arabic,
4) Pashto
5) Somali
6) Urdu,
7) Farsi.

The second category is languages ​​and dialects, the need for specialists with knowledge of which appears in the short term (up to 10 years):

1) Azeri,
2) Amharic
3) Acholi,
4) Bengali
5) Burmese,
6) Kyrgyz,
7) Punjabi
8) Tajik
9) Uzbek,
10) Hindi.

The third category is languages ​​and dialects, the need for specialists with knowledge of which takes place in the long term (more than 10 years):

1) Arabic literary (standard),
2) Vietnamese,
3) dari,
4) Hebrew,
5) indonesian
6) Spanish,
7) Chinese (Mandarin),
8) Korean,
9) Kurdish
10) Malay,
11) German,
12) Portuguese,
13) Romanian,
14) Russian,
15) Serbo-Croatian,
16) Swahili
17) Tagalog (Pilipino),
18) Thai,
19) Turkish,
20) Ukrainian,
21) French,
22) house
23) Japanese.

It would be appropriate to say here that the Russian intelligence services have a lag in the training of specialists, including officers, with knowledge of acholi, baluchi, punjabi and somali.

      Elementary school is to blame. And the country of origin itself is to blame for the poor school.

    I would like to know more about these centers ... addresses ... teaching methods ... profiles and areas of study ... names and addresses of teachers ... how much they get for work ... the composition of the cadets ... the duration of training .. . What equipment are used for training and many other smaller issues.

      I don’t know the addresses, I know what the system engineers teach, which doesn’t care what country, history, culture. The main thing in the system is to find or create an opposition, destroy the system of national values ​​through pederasty, individualism, provide arms to both sides of the conflict, bring the government to power, which agrees to take American loans for many years.
      from the priority of the need for languages ​​it is clear where it will blaze once again

    And we did not know that the military attache is a personnel, legal employee of military intelligence. It was never even hidden. And about where they learn honestly do not care. The main thing is that our people are much more professional.

    In general, history is a science, how to distinguish truth from lies. Therefore, a good intelligence officer, diplomat, businessman and engineer should be taught history as a science and not a set of ideological or nationalist cliches. Therefore, I think that an American or British university gives basic knowledge to its scouts. Professor of history, respected in the scientific community can be safely used in analytical work. I do not mean his devotion. And all these intelligence agencies are continuing education courses. There are interesting recollections of the American physicist Feynman. Read the chapter on how he read in Brazil for the first time in this country a scientific report in Portuguese. To do this, he did more than dozens of employees of the State Department and the CIA to promote American influence in Brazil.

    Well, we always had an emphasis on Punjabi, but in Acholi and Baluchi we always confused the cases. Learn, tighten!
