JIHAD DOCUMENTS AND ANALYSIS
A set of analytical pieces and the captured al Qaida documents on which they are based that have appeared recently in the blogosphere in such places as DNI
, American Future
and The Small Wars Council.
A lot to dive in here, all of it worth reading and it also gives me the unmistakable feeling that the intelligentsia of jihad are avid readers of American military theory on the web including 4GW, COIN doctrine, asymmetric warfare and so on.
Hmm, given the possibility of a feedback loop being in operation, perhaps we need more blog posts convincing al Qaida that it needs to have a gold-plated weapons acquisition and appropriation process. When Osama bin Laden is reported to have ordered a QDR then we may be on the cusp of victory.Dr. Michael Scheuer
