Batalionul Humint la 5 ani de la înfiinţare

GUVERNUL ROMANIEI

Astăzi, 31 iulie, a.c., militarii Batalionului HUMINT de la Buzău, primul batalion de acest tip din Armata României, au aniversat împlinirea a 5 ani de la înfiinţare.

Cu acest prilej, preşedintele României, Traian Băsescu, i-a înmânat comandantului Batalionului, colonelul Lucian Foca, Drapelul de luptă al unităţii, în prezenţa şefului Statului Major General, general dr. Eugen Bădălan. Drapelul a fost acordat unităţii prin Decretul prezidenţial nr. 1012, din 25 iulie 2006.

În prezent, peste 200 de militari din acest batalion se află în misiuni în teatrele de operaţii. Astfel, în Afganistan şi Irak, militarii HUMINT fac parte din detaşamente speciale şi celule de conducere a informaţiilor, iar, în Balcani, din detaşamente speciale în Kosovo şi Bosnia. Rezultatele obţinute de militarii acestui batalion au făcut ca aliaţii şi partenerii României să solicite participarea lor în cadrul comandamentelor şi a Forţei de răspuns NATO, precum şi în cadrul operaţiunii Uniunii Europene din Bosnia.

Batalionul îndeplineşte diverse misiuni, cum ar fi procurarea de date şi informaţii de interes din surse umane în vederea identificării riscurilor şi ameninţărilor la adresa securităţii trupelor dislocate în teatrele de operaţii, asigurarea protecţiei structurilor militare dislocate în teatre prin furnizarea de informaţii utile comandanţilor, participarea cu structuri independente la acţiunile militare ale forţelor proprii.

Pe parcursul misiunilor executate, trei militari din acest batalion - sublocotenenţii post-mortem Iosif Silviu Fogoraşi, Mihail Anton Samuilă şi Narcis Şonei au căzut la datorie.

Batalionul HUMINT

- The HUMINT Battalion -


Direcţia Generală de Informaţii a Apărării (General Directorate for Defense Intelligence, DGIA) is Romania's military intelligence agency, subordinated to the Ministry of National Defense.

DGIA is organized into 2 directorates:

* Direcţia Informaţii Militare - DIM - (Directorate for Military Intelligence - foreign intelligence)
* Direcţia Siguranţă Militară - DSM - (Directorate for Military Security - counter-intelligence)


In the early 2000's, together with the major re-organization efforts which swept the military, the 404th Scouting Center, a downsized version of the previous battalion, was renamed as a HumInt battalion (designation unknown).

It was revealed during 2006 that several Scouts which have been KIA in Afghanistan actually belonged to this unit, although it was originally stated that they belong to the light infantry battalions which were currently deployed there.

The "HumInt" battalion continues to be subordonated to the general directorate of military intelligence (DGIA). This unit is used for strategic purposes, compared to other scouting units which are used at a tactical level during conflicts.

A detachment has been deployed and rotated in Iraq ever since 2003.

History

By the year 2000, the famous 404th Scouting battalion, located in Buzau, had been reduced to roughly half its size and renamed a Scouting Center. The 404th Scouting Centered continued to be under direct command of the general directorate for military intelligence, or DGIA. By the mid 2000's however, as Romania was now a NATO member and as the need for strategic level intelligence on the battlefield had increased, a decision was taken to recreate the unit at a battalion level. Its designation unknown, the new unit is refered to as "the Humint battalion", and continues to be under direct control of DGIA.

The Humint battalion received its combat flag according to Presidential Decret no. 1012, from 25 july 2006. The combat flag was given to battalion commander, col. Lucian Foca, by President Traian Basescu during a ceremony on 31 july 2006, at the Buzau headquarters. Also present at the ceremony were General dr. Eugen Badalan, at that time General Chief of Staff.

Characteristics

The Humint battalion continues to be a separate structure from all the other Scouting formations in the country. While the role of the usual scouting company or battalion is to gather field intelligence prior to combat, the role of the Humint battalion could be described of gathering tactical and operational intelligence for long term use. That data can then be processed into a large database of information, which can be used for strategic purposes, both for military as well as for national security needs. The Humint personnel collects human intelligence from the battlefield area, from enemy forces, from civilians, etc. Several means are at the disposal of Humint operatives in order to successfully conduct their operations, among them being electronic monitoring, aerial photography, human observation, and so on. It has to be reminded here that the Romanian Humint detachment in Iraq has been using two Shadow 600 UAV's since its first deployment rotation for "specific operations" in their area of responsibility.

Admission

Admission standards and/or procedures for the Humint battalion are unknown and will probably continue to be kept confidential from public knowledge for some time to come.

Order of Battle

The Humint unit is the size of a battalion, designation unknown. It is entirely located at the barracks of the former 404 Scouting battalion and Center, respectively. The base is called UM 02000.

The Humint battalion continues to be, as its two predecessors, under the direct command of the Military General Intelligence Directorate, or DGIA.

Operations

Afghanistan
Several Scouts have been KIA in Afghanistan since 2002. Officially, Romania has never sent special operations forces in that country; however both the operatives as well as the commanders of several SOF-compatible units have long mentioned their experience in that theater of operations. Sgt-maj. Mihail Anton Samuila and sgt-maj Silviu Fogorasi are two scouts which have been KIA in Afghanistan in 11 november 2003. Although incorporated into the 151st Light Infantry battalion "Razboieni", nicknamed Black Wolves, the two seargant major's used to be scouts in other units, such as the now-disbanded 119th Scouting Battalion in Oradea, which used to be one of the best in the country. In july 2006, it was publicly admitted that they were from the Humint battalion.

Two years later, in april 2005, sgt-maj Narcis Sonei was also KIA during a mission in SE Afghanistan. He was incorporated into the 300th Light Infantry battalion "St. Andrew" for that deployment, however several media sources have stated that he was in fact incorporated into a scouting unit. The profile of Narcis Sonei also doesn't describe a regular infantryman; he had a parachutism license, a climbing license, and a communications license. Furthermore, he won the 1st place in a mountain climbing competition organized ...in Buzau!


Sgt-maj Narcis Sonei

Iraq
Romania lost several soldiers in Iraq in recent years, incorporated into the light infantry battalions deployed there. In 2006, with the official recognition of the Humint battalion, came the public acknowledgement by military authorities that some of those men were in fact from this unit.

In 2004, a written note from Major General Mieczyslaw Bieniek, commander in chief of the Multinational Division in south-central Iraq stated the following:
"The Romanian HumInt team is the most performant group of the Division, regarding intelligence, and supplies us with very important information. I am convinced that one day, due to their remarcable results, the Coalition will succeed in transforming Iraq into a free, democratic and sovereign state".

Bosnia-Herzegovina
Humint detachments and teams have constantly been on rotation in Bosnia-Herzegovina since the unit was first "created" (renamed), in 2001.

Kosovo
Detachment and platoon sized teams have also been on rotation in Kosovo.

Presedintele Traian Basescu a inmanat,ieri (31 iulie 2006), colonelului Lucian Foca, Drapelul de lupta al Unitatii militare 02000 din Buzau, prima structura de tip tactic din Armata romana. Este vorba despre Batalionul HUMINT, unitate speciala de lupta si cercetare, aflata in cadrul Directiei Generale de Informatii a Apararii. Seful statului a sosit la Buzau insotit de generalul Eugen Badalan, seful Statului Major General, si de consilierul prezidential Sergiu Medar. (ambii la Fac. SPRISE Sibiu-2009)

Batalionul Humint este creat pe structura fostului Batalion 404 Cercetare. Actiunea s-a desfasurat fara accesul presei.

In prezent, peste 200 de militari din acest batalion se afla in misiuni in teatrele de operatii. Astfel, in Afganistan si Irak, militarii HUMINT fac parte din detasamente speciale si celule de conducere a informatiilor, iar in Balcani, din detasamente speciale in Kosovo si Bosnia.

Batalionul indeplineste diverse misiuni, cum ar fi procurarea de date si informatii de interes din surse umane in vederea identificarii riscurilor si amenintarilor la adresa securitatii trupelor dislocate in teatrele de operatii, asigurarea protectiei structurilor militare dislocate in teatre prin furnizarea de informatii utile comandantilor, participarea cu structuri independente la actiunile militare ale fortelor proprii. Pe parcursul misiunilor executate, trei militari din acest batalion - sublocotenentii post-mortem Iosif Silviu Fogorasi, Mihail Anton Samuila si Narcis Sonei au cazut la datorie.

Saptamana trecuta, presedintele Traian Basescu a semnat decretele pentru acordarea drapelelor de lupta pentru Batalionul 1 Operatii Speciale "Vulturii", care are sediul la Targu-Mures, si Batalionul HUMINT, unitate speciala de lupta si cerecetare, aflata in cadrul Directiei Generale de Informatii a Apararii.

Cele doua batalioane speciale au fost infiintate in urma cu mai mult timp, dar nimeni nu a recunoscut oficial existenta lor. Pregatirea militarilor din aceste unitati s-a facut cu instructori de la Pentagon si din armatele Israelului, Turciei si Marii Britanii. Cele doua unitati de comando vor actiona numai in cazuri extreme si la ordinul special al sefului statului, fiind pregatite sa actioneze inclusiv in afara granitelor.
