Manned, unmanned mix needed in Iraq

“The Pentagon is using a mix of manned and unmanned intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) assets to monitor the ongoing situation in Iraq, a top Air Force general said today. ‘It’s what we call nontraditional ISR,’ Gen. Mike Hostage, the head of Air Force Air Combat Command, said July 29. ‘We’re using fighter aircraft that have ISR capacities, like targeting pods, and things that give us a lot of awareness on what’s going on, on the ground.’”
