    thanks guys

    I actually assign the Hoffman book for my large lecture class, but I'll check out that other thread -- it'd be nice to assign something addit'l that spoke to hybrid issues, b/c they will bring it up!

    Need advice finding a reading

    Hey, all. I could use your advice -- I'm looking to assign a reading on the definition of terrorism that is up to date enough to take into account the complexities posed by ISIS, its activities...

    Look Past the Headline

    Look what else is in the Times article:

    Dover

    To the best of my knowledge it is, however, far too much is made of it, IMHO. First, a large set of pictures was released in one set in response to a FOIA request (and, really, how many pics of...

    The Canadian Example

    To be clear, when I had earlier written that the Canadian press seemed more willing to "show more" than the American press of bodies, I was in that case referring to, you know, bodies, as in images...

    Fallujah Images

    Actually, that's a very interesting example. It's one of the only iconic images that most people wouldn't actually recognize, because (like the Mogadishu images) media outlets believed it's newsvalue...

    PA Credibility

    Well, the reason it's so important to keep PA firewalled from IO is because, although this might be "inside baseball" to the public, as I argued, it isn't to the press. It's the PAOs who deal with...

    The Strategic Cpl. As the Strategic Cameraman

    This is a terrific piece, and could as easily (perhaps more appropriately) have been filed under Media and Info Ops as Triggerpuller. The recognition that the vision of the "Strategic Cpl" is a...

    Clearly, Wired's Interpretation Is No Longer Operative

    Whether that's because the Army walked it back when they saw the response or because Wired got it wrong is hard to know.
