A lesson in how effective military intelligence works


Source Link: www.military.com

Defining military intelligence as "correction from below" also carries the culture of a Third Generation military over into the intelligence process. Just as another of those words that speak volumes, Auftragstaktik, builds tactics on the understanding that the levels of command nearest to the fight have the clearest tactical picture, so underr├Ąttelser builds military intelligence on the same understanding. The two work hand-in-glove: junior leaders act on the basis of what they see, not detailed orders from remote headquarters, and they simultaneously feed what they see into an intelligence process that is eager for their corrections. Neither action eliminates uncertainty in war, because nothing can, but both speed adaptation to it, which is the goal in maneuver warfare.

The concept of working below would be a good starting point when it comes to overhauling the US intel community and making US military more flexible in order to fight the War on Terror.

The mistake the US government and military is currently making is that more bombs then brains is being used. Now we know how the American right is obsessed with bashing Europe so I'm sure they will ignore a wise course of action once again. American political leaders will also ignore anything that dosnt come from the defence contractors that are in there pocket.
