Mr. Scheuer asks the Question


A short read worth your time. Michael Scheuer was head of the Bin Laden Task Force at the Agency. I had the privilege of joining one of his briefs and found him to be a straight shooter and a breath of fresh air within that particular organization.

His books are also worthy of a read; especially "Marching to Hell".

Lesson for the day....

Read up on Danny Roxo (1933-1976).

There will be a test on this material....coming soon to a town near you.

Tactical Skills Q & A -or- Be Good at Everything or Die (repost)

In the interest of spreading useful information regarding tactics/training I wanted to relay this conversation I had with some folks from the tactical community a while back. I was asked several pointed questions which I do my best to answer below:

Question 1:

Of all the various training disciplines available, which one should be top of the training list right now in light of world events? Rifle training? Land Navigation? Communications? Patrolling, etc...


Well, there are definitely some sacred cows on that list. It of course kind of depends on where you are as an individual with regard to the various skillsets, but lets assume you are a competent shooter with some basic fieldcraft under your belt....I would put information gathering on top.
