WASHINGTON — War is going back under wraps for the U.S. military. That's the next-generation plan put forth by the top special operations commander who led the Osama bin Laden raid.
That plan is being embraced at the highest levels of the Pentagon and the White House.
Big armies and the land invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan will be replaced by fast and light special operations raids that leave little trace or raids by friendly local forces the U.S. has trained, helping fight mutual enemies side by side.
U.S. officials say that's the plan put forth by special operations chief Adm. Bill McRaven.
