Lt. Col. Bill Prior, commander of the 4th Brigade’s 4th Battalion, 9th Infantry Regiment, features in a long story on the Wired web site.

It is headlined, provocatively, “How Technology Almost Lost the War: In Iraq, the Critical Networks Are Social ? Not Electronic,” by Noah Shachtman.

A long read; Strykers figure in here. Prior’s soldiers are the guys fighting with the Land Warrior System.

UPDATE: There’s also this via YouTube. Appears to be a production by the Land Warrior project management team.

Note the Stryker’s bent slat and skinned up armor panel behind Manchu 6’s left shoulder. Doink!
