Just doing my duty…

Apparently, ADM Stavridis (along with LTG Caldwell here at CGSC) is on the blogging bandwagon.

The process of reading and writing is important, he said, because the nation faces an “innovative” enemy like the Sept. 11, 2001, attackers and South American smugglers who transport drugs at sea in semisubmersible vessels.

“The most important reason is that the people who want to do harm to this country are doing so,” he said. “They are thinkers.”

Either through published works or through weblogs, the goal is an exchange of ideas, knowledge and information — such as on the participator-driven Wikipedia, he said.

“No one of us is as smart as all of us together,” he said. “The speed of ideas you can get in the blogs is remarkable.”

I have to admit, although a little late to the game, at least the DoD is getting on board with the so-called “new media.” Hopefully, the ingenuity of the average American will help us to catch up so we can stop losing the IO campaign between the US Military and Al Qaeda.
