TOO MANY LAWYERS, NOT ENOUGH WARRIORS? Warfare in the post-9/11era has a new face. Enemy combatants may not be in uniform, and could be hiding in villages filled with women and children or posing as dead bodies lying in the street. Soldiers have fractions of time to decide whether or not to employ the use of deadly force, balancing on a knife-edge of life and death. For many soldiers, the real battle begins after the fatalities in-theater when lawyers get involved. Judgment and honor are called into question and hindsight applied to tactical decisions made in the heat of conflict. Iraq War veteran and former police officer David G. Bolgiano examines how the fear of using force in combat has put American fighting forces in unnecessary danger. Calling for a more reasoned approach, Bolgiano insists on adapting current training methodology to address the present threat to American security.
