Was the COIN Manual conference at Fort Leavenworth last week a success or a failure?
I have heard backchannel that the focus of the rewrite of FM 3-24 was going to be on “tactics” and but that a “light footprint option” had to be included to appease policy makers. Some good suggestions were made at SWJ by Colonel Robert C. Jones, but not much has been said yet online that I have seen. USACAC blog seriously could use some updating on a more frequent basis.
I’m curious where they went with this. Opinions and comments solicited.
