Effective delegation and annihilation tactics allows US and allies to destroy what is left if ISIS
Next Big Future:
...less than four months after Trump took office, Mattis said the operational and tactical difference has been clear.One of the major changes from the Obama administration is that commanders on the ground no longer have to get permission from amateurs in the White House before taking action to destroy the enemy.
Two significant changes resulted from President Trump’s review of our findings.
1. he delegated authority to the right level to aggressively and in a timely manner move against enemy vulnerabilities.
2. he directed a tactical shift”: surround ISIS fighters, instead of just pushing them out of a given territory.
The changes can be described as effective delegation and annihilation.

And American troops are still under instruction to halt at the last point of cover and concealment, letting local forces go in for the direct assault.
