The author reflects on military epistemology and its relation to military intelligence. According to him, military epistemology in the military lexicon is also called doctrine rooted in military science. He claims that the U.S. was hindered by the lack of actionable intelligence in acting decisively against al-Qaeda prior to September 2001. The military science predominant in the U.S. military is firmly rooted in Newtonian science.
