From a retired U.S. Army Major:
Another interesting aspect of Romney’s SPF is its heavy reliance on recently updated Army counterinsurgency (COIN) doctrine. The Army COIN Field Manual 3-24 was developed under the watchful eye of General Petraeus during his tenure as Combined Arms Commander at Fort Leavenworth, KS. Just more evidence of Mitt’s deep understanding of the issue. If I were still on active duty, I’d be excited to have him as my Commander-in-Chief.
