To Address the Irregular Warfare Elephant in the Room, Sacred Cattle Must First be Slain | Small Wars Journal

Must Read

Tom Ordeman, Jr. is a freelance military historian, information security expert, and former federal contractor who shares the subject of the Department of Defense’s (DoD) mastery of irregular warfare. 

One of which is counterinsurgency (COIN), has received some long overdue discussion, initially in an article in The Hill penned by a team of authors including LTG Charles T. Cleveland (Ret.), former commander of U.S. Army Special Operations Command, as well as Editor-in-Chief of the Small Wars Journal and a renowned former Army Special Forces officer, COL David Maxwell (Ret.) The first essay emphasized the DoD’s persistent incapability to master information warfare and argued for the U.S. Irregular Warfare Functional Center (IWFC) to be established, Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) to lead the DoD’s efforts to master IW, and supplementing through collaborations with one or more American colleges.
