When we think of Foreign Internal Defense (FID), we most often think of conducting missions "by, with and through" a Partner Nation's government and patrolling alongside partner nation security forces who are embroiled in yet another conflict in a "bad" region of the world. But, in some conflicts, this very direct method of training and advising is inadvisable at best, and foolhardy at worst. In Pakistan right now, "by, with and through" represents just such a foolhardy approach.This thesis will not only substantiate that assertion but by presenting the "menu" of training and advisory choices the United States and other nations have will point to a "third way"--a method of training and advising that should not be as unfamiliar as it seems to be, since the United States used it very effectively just thirty years ago, and in the same general vicinity.
