Quotable: “The Future of the Army” Report

Sunday, October 9th 2016

In September, 2016, the Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security of the Atlantic Council published a report The Future of the Army:  Today, Tomorrow, and the Day after Tomorrow by retired Army Lieutenant General David Barno and Nora Bensahel, Distinguished Scholar-in-Residence at American University’s School of International Service.

 

The two bluntly assessed national security challenges in the near, medium, and long term.  Shaping the Army and its overseas basing and logistics postures to meet these challenges will no doubt require substantial collaboration with the Department of State.

 

There are, however, no mentions of “diplomacy,” “diplomatic,” “public affairs,” “public relations,” or “civil affairs” in the report. 

 

Neither are there mentions of “information operations,” “international development,” “disinformation,” “propaganda,” or “stabilization.”  There is a single glancing mention of “interagency.”

Quotable: Joseph Chapa on drones and public affairs

Sunday, September 25th 2016

“The fact that information is biased does not make it false, and the fact that information intends to shape public opinion and action does not make it underhanded or deceitful. * * * America has met the enemy’s PR effectiveness with its own PR failures. Misconceptions about RPA operations have been widespread and continue to proliferate.”
