April 1st is upon us. In some circles it is celebrated as "April Fools' Day." I choose to observe it as Open Source Intelligence Analysts' Day-- the one day of the year that we all have to be extra-suspicious of every news article, blog post and tweet. It's a good skill to develop, and we have this unique time where we know that there are hidden gems of disinformation being introduced into the streams of information we've come to rely on the rest of the year.
It's like a tornado drill for truth.
