the back up article that purports to support the thesis, gives little detailed description of how the study was designed, and how the data were tested for significance, beyond chance. The very mention of "embedded observers" SCREAMS "FAILED DESIGN".

If we were not two weeks past April 1st, I would have to conclude someone worked overtime on an almost chaplinesque, comedic spoof of "serious science". That General will probably become more famous for his acceptance of this drivel, than Georgie Patton became for demonstrating proper disciplinary procedure for those he recognized to be cowards.
