Some interesting on COIN Ops in Afghanistan. The thesis has some validity to it as USSF gets further removed from any influence/command and control in the Afghan National Army and becomes more reliant on it's "By, Through and With" local national forces being either Afghan National Police or Afghan Border Police.

“The COIN Warrior” Waging Influence
Hints for the Counterinsurgency (COIN) Strategy in Afghanistan
by Sean McKenna and Russell Hampsey

ISAFCAAT-E Memorandum Special to Small Wars Journal


The purpose of this document is to flatten the information sharing process across the force and provide information that we have seen throughout the Afghan Theater. The intent is to provide information to personnel in their pre-deployment training at the National and International Training Centers, as well as forces currently operating in the Afghan COIN Environment. The information contained in this document can be utilized as a pocket guide for continual reference.

Since the announcement of the Counterinsurgency Strategy with the publishing of the Integrated Civilian-Military Campaign Plan (ICMCP) we have advised and assisted numerous units from Regional Commands to Platoon sized elements. There are a few common threads that resonate throughout the lower echelons of command and we identified a need to address these universal issues.

This document is not a panacea, but should provide personnel at all levels with insight as to several techniques and ideas to put into their tool kit to improve their repertoire especially at the battalion, company, and platoon levels. The counterinsurgency environment in Afghanistan requires a customized approach in every village and valley; you are only limited by your imagination and ability to influence.
