Interesting, but not extraordinary. This Rand research document discusses good and bad counterinsurgency or we may call it counterterrorism practices and derives conclusions that are educative to forces involved in CT operations.
In all about 30 cases were taken for study.
Having seen CT ops closely in Kashmir, AP, Chhattisgarh and North East, I can confidently say that our forces follow best practises in CT operations as enunciated in this research document. Although not much can be called at once new, a good reference document for our CT forces and governments.
