Diverging from conventional institutions, the IINPS distinguishes itself as a multidisciplinary organization grounded in practical experience rather than theoretical academia. It brings together a diverse range of seasoned professionals who have firsthand knowledge of the recurring and foreseeable failures of US initiatives abroad. This underscores the notion that the United States, due to its incapacity, inadvertently fosters instability. Paradoxically, despite contributing to this instability, the US often rejects this outcome as implausible. Policymakers and planners dismiss this harsh reality, unwilling to acknowledge their failures, as accepting such a notion seems inconceivable to them. Founder Pete Turner expressed his motivation, stating, "I initiated this venture out of frustration with the recurring, avoidable mistakes in our approach. My goal is to break the cycle of history repeating itself. Top priority of the organization is to improve the accuracy and priorities of foreign policy because we pick things that are irrelevant, costing time, money and effort, resulting in unnecessary deaths which could have been avoided.
