A steady flow of policy documents details how the branches of the military — and the Defense Department as a whole — will prepare for the wars of the future. But the changing nature of warfare may have the United States preparing for the wrong war. Retired Army Lt. Gen. David Barno is senior fellow and co-director of the Responsible Defense Program at the Center for a New American Security. He was the first Commander of Military Operations-Afghanistan. He writes on War On The Rocks, under the title “The Shadow Wars of the 21st Century,” that war is morphing. He explained how on In Depth with Francis Rose.
Francis Rose is the host of In Depth, which airs weekdays from 8-10 a.m. on 1500 AM in the Washington, D.C. metro area and online everywhere. Francis has covered all three branches of the federal government as a broadcast journalist since 1998. He joined Federal News Radio in 2006, and launched In Depth in 2008 as a daily show focused on connecting federal executives to the information they need to do their jobs better.
