Some folks are using the term “information war” like I would like people to do. I think that perhaps I might have been able to push the meme a little bit over the last year–or more likely, convergent evolution and I was just part of a wave.
Two tonight that pop up are Michael Yon and Outside the Beltway. Clearly, the Marines get it; equally clearly, someone in the Army doesn’t. Can you imagine how hard it would be to defend the popular will center of gravity without a separate information path that was more truthful–or at least outside the main narrative frame? I believe email and blogs helped keep the war from becoming disastrous for those reasons.
On the other hand I feel that I’ve not been able to do enough to try to push this effort of getting the information war won, or at least stanch the bleeding. Wish I had more ideas in that direction I could execute.
Update: Tigerhawk goes in deep to examine domestic infowar aspects.
