Pysop definitely needs to shift fire. How are they relegating and reconciling with afgh tribes in afgh? Id there any? What has psy/humint done for afgh. G heyve placed blame on ops and have fucked shit up. How many sigint etc are regional actors? How many know the region other than being given it by command? How many understand pashtunwali vs Islamism vs nationalism? Very few; we tend to lump everyone into one group when its a multifaceted approach. It's not Islamism in afgh we are just battling but nationalism & extremism mixed. Humint etc etc will never be profficient as they aren't 100% on ground with locals 100% of the time. Until we unfuck that it makes no difference.
