Default Tom, at the very least

it serves to enable cooperative behavior. Of course, that depends on the individuals involved. Same problem with sharing intel, etc.

Entropy, you have had a "blinding flash of the ALMOST obvious." Those were the things that we used to call in SWORD sort of slap the head moments. It should have been obvious to anyone with half a brain but for some reason no one got it until somebody actualy pointed it out. Sometimes they don't get it even when it is pointed out. It is also why in interagency and multinational operations we refer to unity of effort rather than unity of command. The latter is a subset of the former and makes things a lot easier. But unity of command is no panacea, especially if the commander chooses to disregard the facts (which has happened on more than one occasion).
