Abstract:

In May 2003, coalition forces operating in Iraq completed decisive actions of Operation Iraqi Freedom OIF and transitioned to stability and support operations SASO. During this phase, anti-Iraqi forces, a conglomerate of different interest groups, have attacked coalition and Iraqi security forces and created instability within the population centers of Iraq. In this environment, the coalition faces the daunting task of maintaining order in Iraq and assisting the Iraqis in establishing a government led by Iraqi citizens. To be successful during SASO, the U.S. military must incorporate law enforcement techniques, tactics, and procedures into combat training.
