but I'd want to hear justifications for the expense. It may well be that our providing the uniforms has less to do with the camouflage affect than in being able to determine which targets are fair game and which are not. Of course if the Taliban can quickly reproduce such uniforms and put them on their own people, we'll need to change the color or pattern. Uniforms have always serviced a purpose or two. Having meetings and making such decisions keeps a lot of high ranking people away from the gunfire. The rules of conflict change constantly.
