Does U.S. Military Need to Reinvent Itself to ‘Operate in the Information Age’?

Foreign Policy’s The E.R. podcast addresses whether: “It’s Time the U.S. Military Reinvented Itself to Operate in the Information Age,” asking: “Is the U.S. military still too much of an industrial-era relic to meet the challenges of the moment and adapt to a new world order?”  

The post previews: “David Rothkopf, Rosa Brooks, Kori Schake, and Tom Ricks dissect and evaluate the way the military functions in the face of recent geopolitical change. And, as they discuss why the military has had such problems adapting to a technological age, the panel raises some vital questions: How effective can the U.S. military be, 20 to 30 years down the road, when there is little incentive to work toward forward-thinking progress? And is it even possible to upgrade the current system without the urgency of a catastrophe?”
