Abstract : This report describes the exploratory efforts to develop basic concepts for formulating and interpreting criteria pertinent to the counterinsurgency at the operational area level. It elaborates the role of the area commander with emphasis on decision-making functions, alternatives and guidelines for his evaluation. Although a great deal of work remains to be done in counterinsurgency criteria development, this report is a first step, one which specifies immediate problems as well as directions for future effort.
