Alternate Title: Special Warfare: A Glimpse Inside the New Face Of Terror

'Special Warfare' is an authorized, official quarterly publication of the United States Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School, Fort Bragg, N.C. Its mission is to promote the professional development of special operations forces by providing a forum for the examination of established doctrine and new ideas. […] From the Commandant: "In this edition of Special Warfare, Master Sgt. Edward Ubinas, of the 3rd Special Forces Group (Airborne) has put together an unconventional warfare primer that will stimulate the unconventional warfare thoughts of our readers. Erin McQuagge and Andrew Jamal, two former Soldiers, take a look at two of the deadliest terrorist groups that have evolved from al-Qaeda: The Khorasan Group is a less well known, but deadly cell that has evolved from al-Qaeda and serves as an elite arm of al-Qaeda with the sole purpose of attacking targets overseas; and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, whose bloody march through Iraq and Syria continues to dominate the headlines. Finally, Lt. Col. Pat Duggan writes about the need for the U.S. to develop cyber-enabled special warfare as an emerging tool to mobilize global networks, decelerate eroding cyber-technology superiority and most importantly, to offer new strategic tools for our country."
