The Second World War featured substantial amounts of irregular and information warfare, and so too did the wars of the later twentieth century. Since information warfare is both a form and a transmission of power, it should be recognized as a centre of gravity under certain conditions. It is easy to become focused on the technical means of information warfare, but the technology is only the enabler in the network, because the objective is to obtain a psychological outcome. The enemy's public and neutral populations are the ways and means in information warfare, for it is they that can provide 'mass' in any information conflict. Information warfare is currently characterized by reconnaissance and probing which expose enemy capabilities and propensities, but it is more than that. Behind the scenes, the operation had required close co-operation of many agencies, but it illustrates the effectiveness of a synchronized and combined agency-approach to information warfare.
