The second part of the JSOTF-P embed piece is now up. This part treats a conversation with one of our military's best minds in COIN theory -- Col. David Maxwell, who has just left JSOTF-P to go to USASOC as the G3.
As a followup to the piece, consider this article from ABS-CBN today: "Army, MILF hold joint medical civic action program." Maxwell's vision is coming about, right before your eyes. This is what COIN is all about, and makes an excellent background for the final part of the series on Friday.
