"This series examines the unconventional threats in Afghanistan/Pakistan and postwar Iraq and the effort by U.S. military force to adapt from a cold-war mode of operating to counter-terror and counter-insurgency operations. Sanctuaries, hostile terrain and population, weak or ambivalent local allies, and the limited number of U.S. personnel who have trained in the small-unit culturally attuned counter-insurgency tactics all contribute to continuing U.S. frustrations in both Afghanistan and Iraq."
