 FM3-0 Chptr 11 Enabling Operations - Information Superiority
Commanders manage their information resources, combine their judgment with the knowledge of their staffs and subordinates, and use information systems to understand their battlespace better than their adversaries or enemies do.
Commanders and staffs must use discipline in separating fact from assumption; otherwise they are vulnerable to deception or risk inaccurate situational understanding.
Commanders use IO and related activities to mitigate the effects of enemy IO, as well as adverse effects stemming from misinformation, rumors, confusion, and apprehension.

Time and time again, itemized in detail below, George Bush has shown contempt for his commanders, disrespected their advice, demeaned them publicly and privately, and taken action after action that directly harmed the safety of our troops and caused great damage to the mission and our national security.
It high time we end this abuse of command influence, these attempts by the President and Secretary of Defense to ignore the advice of commanders, and to threaten or intimidate them into not speaking out, and then to publicly misrepresent their views.
Is it not true that our commanders time and again sought help, which was denied, to provide body armor, fortified vehicles, helmets, bandages and other equipment that civilian officials failed to provide, despite repeated, and false, claims that they always gave the commanders what those commanders sought.

 FM3-0 Chptr 4 Fundamentals of Full Spectrum Operations
Commanders at all levels weigh the apparent benefits of a complex concept of operations against the risk that subordinates will not be able to understand or follow it.
Commanders use their experience, professional knowledge, and understanding of the situation to visualize and change their battlespace as current operations transition to future operations.
Commanders identify and exploit friendly capabilities that pose asymmetric challenges to the enemy force, even as Army forces act to counter hostile asymmetric threats.Asymmetric attacks pose dilemmas to both friendly and enemy forces.

Commanders retain reserves and adjust their main efforts to exploit tactical opportunities and carry the fight into the depths of the enemy's formations or defenses.
Commanders make this distinction clear to their staffs and subordinate commanders when effects of one activity are a precondition for subsequent action.
Commanders must be able to shift focus, tailor forces, and move from one role or mission to another rapidly and efficiently.

 Opinion
Some 2nd-in-command and company commanders were hardly few months junior to the commanding officers, and some brigadiers were only one or two months senior to their battalion commanders.
But the performance of the brigade and division commanders could not be tested during training exercises as most of them were acting as directors and at the same time commanders of their formations.
The brigade commanders all belonged to the armour but unfortunately like their division commander they also lacked boldness, drive, robustness and miserably failed to take advantage from the weaknesses displayed by the enemy during battle.

For the first time, military commanders far in the rear of the battle will be able to see the fighting as it unfolds, which will allow them to respond quickly and clear away some of the fog of war.
Commanders hope the new connectivity will reduce “friendly-fire” casualties, which accounted for nearly one-quarter of combat deaths during the Gulf War.
Observers fear that top-ranking commanders far removed from the battle will horn in to make split-second decisions that should be made by those “smelling the gunpowder.” They worry that will sap initiative at lower levels, where officers are accountable for their mission and their people.

 Gamers Europe Editorial: A Videogamer's Journal, #7   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Time Commanders is a war strategy program that basically borrows the Rome: Total War battle engine and gives a team of four people (two generals and two lieutenants) the chance to recreate famous battles against the computer.
Now, the reason Time Commanders works so well is because it treats the concept of videogames with respect and maturity and then adapts it to the television format.
Time Commanders, I believe, is the first videogame television program that treats its subject matter with the respect it deserves.

Just scraping into the definition of game shows, Time Commanders pits a team of four armchair generals against the might of a computer simulation.
The other two are too close to see the big board, they're concentrating on fighting their own little battles, giving orders to a technician (in fl baseball cap, naturally) to tap into the computer.
These generals on the field hear orders from their commanders at the top, closely mimicking a real battlefield situation.

 Kautz Customs of Service (1864)
In time of peace, however, a Department Commander is often constrained to limit his operations to the means placed at his disposal; but he has the power to apply these means according to his own judgment, within certain limits.
It is the Army Commander’s duty, through his staff, to keep the Departments notified of his wants, of the amount, and where and when required, and to be on hand with the means to receive and take care of them when they arrive.
A Commander should be sufficiently fond of military display to show that he has a pride in his profession; and if his reputation for gallantry and success is not exceeded by his fondness for parade, he has not passed the bounds of good taste.

He is president, chief executive, supreme commander, army commander, more than Sattar his own foreign minister and more than anyone else around him his own expounder of political philosophy.
The time President Musharraf spends as chief executive is time taken from his duties as army chief.
Not only has President Musharraf to face in different directions at the same time, the military, because of the isolationist course pursued over the last two years, is on a promontory by itself, bereft of institutional links with any other section of the population.

People were nervous when a traditional reservist was first named commander in February of 1999, said Donna Magana, who served as secretary for General Williams and the wing's previous two commanders.
Weekly staff meetings kept wing leaders abreast of each others' activities and activity in the wing running smoothly through all elements; first shirts and commanders moved through the squadrons to spread and gain knowledge in many areas; mentoring and awards programs were strengthened.
General Willaims had a vision for the wing to be a leader and an example in the Reserve, and that was his clear and consistent focus.

As if to provide a smart answer for kids accused of spending too much time on their video games console, and not enough time learning, Time Commanders shows that the two are not mutually exclusive.
Four would be military leaders are pitted against a computerised opponent and command one side of a famous battle from history.
The experts begin by explaining the goals of the battle and the relative strengths and weaknesses of the two armies, but once the battle is underway they act only as commentators leaving the team to their own devices.

 Brent Budowsky -- Derelictions Of Duty: How George Bush Has Disrespected Commanders and Hurt Our Troops | BuzzFlash
While I absolutely and totally agree that Bush has disrespected military commanders, I also believe that Commanders who send their troops into harm's way, without proper armor, being overly rotated, knowing that there is no real "battle" plan, knowing that there is no real "reconstruction" plan are just as derelict.
At this time, I would like to bring up the Nazi War Crime Tribunal (since the Geneva Convention rules are being rewritten by this admin).
Maybe the Commanders need their own children, nieces, nephews, brothers, sisters on the front lines.

Needing little more urging than this, the Department of Labor sent its famed troubleshooter, dapper Assistant Secretary Edward Francis McGrady, hotfooting to the Coast to see if he could duplicate his success as settler of the 1934 general strike.

Few days later because Admiral Hamlet found that he would lose his Coast Guard pension if he quit before Oct. 1, President Roosevelt replaced him for a few weeks with Rear Admiral Montgomery Meigs Taylor, 67, retired, onetime commander of the Asiatic Fleet.

Just in case you haven't seen it: a new attempt to bring wargaming to the TV masses in the form of a team of 4 playing against the Artificial Intelligence of a 3D real time strategy game (Romans versus whoever happens to be the enemy that week).
Personally I thought it was ok but would be better if two teams fought head to head rather than against the AI.
On a final note specifically for Brian: In another thread you were looking for a computer game to while away the time - well this one is due out early next year as Rome: Total War.

With the past month, six retired generals have called for Rumsfeld to resign, accusing him of mishandling the Iraq war, ignoring advice of military commanders and having an arrogant management style.
As to the recent criticism of him from one-time commanders, Rumsfeld said, “We should be reasonably tolerant with respect to things that get said.”
Asked whether there was any validity to the criticism of him, Rumsfeld said, “Well, you know, I’ve been hearing all about all of this, and I would prefer to let a little time walk over it.”

If not, a commander runs the risk of losing the battle and then even elite troops cannot turn the tide.
Fortunately for the team, the lieutenant chose to ignore orders ('keep elite in reserve') and she acted on her own initiative and had the elite troops engage the enemy anyhow.
This team of male life-long friends had the distinct advantage that its generals had had in fact quite some experience playing wargames.
