From the trenches - this is great! This clearly indicates a positive shift from the top. The next hurdle will be facilitating the necessary paradigm shift that in COIN tactical actions support PSYOP (and the larger IO umbrella) and not the other way around. It is far better - and possible less expensive - to destroy the "will to fight" rather than to close with and kill the combatants. This involves more than release of delegation authority for the approval/disapproval of PSYOP products. Small steps are steps nonetheless....
