Revealed U.S. Strategy to Battle ISIS Is Wanting

Nov 3 2014 9:34am CST | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

American and Iraqi officials are leaking a plan to battle the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). On the surface, the roadmap to victory seems plausible, but as I note in my book, The Failure of Counterinsurgency: Why Hearts and Minds Are Seldom Won, such well-laid plans often go off the rails in execution on real battlefields.
