Abstract:

In both Vietnam and to a limited degree in Iraq, the Marine Corps had tactical success with the Combined Action Program CAP. Despite this proven tactical success, the Corps failed to develop an in-depth plan to execute an extensive CAP in Iraq. With its past successes as a framework, the Corps must develop and execute a CAP to empower Iraqi local and national governments to provide security and stability. To achieve its desired results the CAP requires systematic training, selection of personnel, and consistent execution in Iraq. The CAP will enable a transfer of responsibility of security and stability to the ISF.
