This paper incorporates what is termed an inquiry model into a model of information warfare. An inquiry model describes an organization?s belief system, often unarticulated, about how they process information and make decisions. The paper takes the position that different organizations have different inquiry systems, and effective information warfare operations requires one to tailor actions to exploit the adversary?s inquiry system. Different inquiry systems are vulnerable to different types of misinformation or actions. Moreover, information warfare actions that are effective against one type of inquiry system may not be effective against another. The paper contributes to the literature on information warfare by describing a means to incorporate the adversary?s worldview into the analysis of what is effective. The paper describes the model and discusses its application to information warfare.
