The New Media and the Warfighter workshop was a collaboration between the U.S. Army War College Center for Strategic Leadership and The SecDev Group of Canada. The workshop used a case study of the 2006 Israeli-Hezbollah War in Lebanon as a jumping off point to examine the challenges and opportunities for leveraging new media, countering new media, and implications for operations security in contemporary warfighting. This workshop report was prepared by Deirdre Collings and Rafal Rohzinski of The SecDev Group, with substantive inputs from Dennis Murphy, Cindy Ayers, Harry Phillips, Jerry Johnson, and David Smith, all from the USAWC.
