In 2005, USSOCOM was directed by the Unified Command Plan to plan, synchronize, and as directed, conduct global operations against terror networks in cooordination with other combatant commanders. Everyday we collaborated, coordinated and planned with other agencies to achieve desired global effects. The most comprehensive element of SOCOM’s synchronization effort was the global collaborative planning process. This effort drew on the other Combatant Command capabilities and expertise to develop DoD’s global war on terror campaign plan.
