Q&A with a counter-insurgency's manual author

via defensetech:

Last week, an Army counterinsurgency field manual came to light, which
seemed to be at odds with the operation in Fallujah. Now, Lt. Col.
Jan Horvath, the main author of that controversial manual, shares his
thoughts on Fallujah -- and more -- in an interview with Defense Tech.
In it, he's sometimes critical of U.S. operations in Iraq -- the
Fallujah strike should have emphasized "operational secrecy and
surprise," for example. But he finds a lot of good in how American
troops are handling this ongoing guerilla war.

very interesting article. read the whole thing.
