A few key changes that you may have missed:
- Aligns joint information operations (IO) doctrine with the transformational planning guidance as specified by the 30 October 2003 Department of Defense Information Operations Roadmap.
- Discontinues use of the terms “offensive IO” and “defensive IO” but retains the recognition that IO is applied to achieve both offensive and defensive objectives.
- Removes information warfare as a term from joint IO doctrine.
Information Warfare. None. (Approved for removal from the next edition of JP 1-02.)
JP 1-02 also changes IWC from Information Warfare Commander to Information Operations Commander.
Does this mean anything? What is the Joint message here?
