In this Command Team Corner episode, Maj. Gen. John Brennan sits down with Lt. Col. Eric Johnson and Lt. Col. Chris Ford to discuss Extremism, Disinformation, and Permissible Online Conduct. What we hear is that there are two parts to addressing these problems - shoring up the foundation of our Soldiers' professional military ethic and inoculating the force against disinformation intended to polarize our society.
Maj. Gen. John Brennan is the commander of 1st Special Forces Command (Airborne).
Lt. Col. Eric Johnson is our former G9, who is studying disinformation as a Fellow at New America's Future of War project.
Lt. Col. Chris Ford is the 1st SFC (A) Staff Judge Advocate.
