CI/HUMINT specialist are created by lateral move from any MOS. They are involved in all facets of planning and conducting CI and human intelligence operations and activities. CI activities are concerned with identifying and counteracting the threat of friendly forces posed by hostile intelligence organizations, or by persons engaged in espionage, sabotage, subversion or terrorism. HUMINT activities are designed to obtain intelligence information using human beings as both sources and collectors, where the human being is the primary collection instrument. CI/HUMINT specialist are expected to possess a working knowledge of the organization, operations, and techniques employed by foreign intelligence services and terrorist organizations. They conduct human intelligence operations to collect information of intelligence value for the commander. They collect information/intelligence by means of interrogation, debriefing, and screening. A specific percentage of 0211s will undergo language training. Qualified CI/HUMINT specialist use foreign language skills or interpreters to conduct CI/HUMINT activities and exploit foreign language documents and recordings. In addition to knowing a foreign country's language, they are familiar with the area, the customs and traditions of its people, and the infrastructure of a foreign force. In support of these functions, CI/HUMINT specialists utilize automated databases, interview/interrogation techniques, liaison, specialized CI techniques, technical support measures, intelligence/investigative photography, reporting-writing techniques and other capabilities as required to accomplish the mission. This MOS will be assigned and voided only by the authority of the CMC (MM).  This is applicable to the Reserves.
Intelligence specialists are familiar with the phases and facets of intelligence operations.
