I watched part of an interview on C-SPAN conducted by a guy who was identified as a (the?) “CBS News national security correspondent.” The interview was with a leftist author who has written a conspiracy-mongering book about the Blackwater company. At one point the author used the term, “fourth generation warfare.” The CBS guy subsequently said that he had never heard that term before and was unfamiliar with it. Is this possible? It seems like a very odd admission for a “national security correspondent” to make. Perhaps I misheard, or the correspondent really was familiar with the term and was trying to elicit an explanation for an audience he assumed was not. Either way, very strange.
