“On-call” Air Ops: Michael Wynne, the Air Force’s top civilian, said the Air Force is now mostly reactive in its posture in Iraq, having shifted away from “scheduled air operations to on-call air operations.” However, he noted that US ground forces now expect fast-reaction close air support. Wynne said that the Army has gotten so accustomed to having CAS on demand that if it takes 10 minutes “they think their radios don’t work.”
