Gideon Rose, editor of Foreign Affairs, interviews General Stanley McChrystal on the transformation of U.S. military strategy to focus on counterterrorism and to increase contextual awareness throughout the ranks. General McChrystal discusses the changes he initiated to make special operations more cohesive and effective, and argues that counterinsurgency allows for sustainable results, as opposed to direct action raids, which can create an illusion of progress while masking deeper problems.
