Abstract:

Cordon and Search operations have become one of the most frequent operations in the Global War on Terror. This type of combat operation involves isolating the target area and searching suspected buildings to capture or destroy possible insurgents andor contraband. A cordon and search may also be thought of as a movement to contact, a raid, a deliberate attack, or as area reconnaissance, based on the accuracy of intelligence.
