James “Jamie” E. Hayes III

Colonel James “Jamie” E. Hayes III is an Army Special Forces officer currently assigned to the Office of the Secretary of Defense.  Colonel Hayes has served in Afghanistan, Iraq, and the Philippines.  The views presented here are his own.

I have a suggestion for the proper U.S. response.  It isn’t Apache gunships, or Predators, or even the advisors that President Obama most recently ordered back into theater.
