Military Operations in the 2000s


Garlaukas, Markus V. "Intelligence Support for Military Operations." Joint Forces Quarterly 33 (Winter 2002-03): 102-108.

"In the past, military expectations have been exaggerated given the means at hand, setting the stage for failure.... National intelligence agencies -- which are neither commands nor part of the military intelligence apparatus -- have various consumers, interests, and priorities beyond direct support to joint operations.... According to joiint doctrine, commanders are expected to coordinate and control support. While national agencies are central to the intelligence effort, it is difficult to achieve such control in practice."
