Guidance Needed to Adequately Integrate Military Information Support Operations into Civil-Military Operations in the Horn of Africa (Report No. DODIG-2013-110)


We are providing this report for your information and use. This is one in a series of reports on civil-military operations in the Horn of Africa region. Although the Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa embedded military information support operations soldiers in civil affairs teams, it did not clearly define their mission and responsibilities. However, in June 2013, the Combined Joint Task Force-Hom of Africa removed all military information support operations soldiers from the civil affairs teams.
