I have to hand it to the Bushies - it seems they turned the tables and engaged in a fundamentally guerrila war on terror - at first. They followed the advice of the CIA in this instance,at least:

 

From Psychological Operations In Guerrilla Warfare:

 

PREFACE

 

Guerrilla warfare is essentially a political war. Therefore, its area of

operations exceeds the territorial limits of conventional warfare, to penetrate

the political entity itself: the "political animal" that Aristotle defined.

 

In effect, the human being should be considered the priority objective in a

political war. And conceived as the military target of guerrilla war, the human

being has his most critical point in his mind. Once his mind has been reached,

the "political animal" has been defeated, without necessarily receiving

bullets.

 

Guerrilla warfare is born and grows in the political environment; in the

constant combat to dominate that area of political mentality that is inherent

to all human beings and which collectively constitutes the "environment" in

which guerrilla warfare moves, and which is where precisely its victory or

failure is defined.

 

This conception of guerrilla warfare as political war turns Psychological

Operations into the decisive factor of the results. The target, then, is the

minds of the population, all the population: our troops, the enemy troops and

the civilian population.
