While the Islamic State's heavy weapons and armor have made it a potent fighting force against Iraq's military, they also make the militants vulnerable to newly authorized American airstrikes. Unlike insurgents who use hit-and-run tactics, the Islamic State is operating more as a conventional army, often moving through open terrain where they can be easily struck from the air. "It inherently gives you a more visible footprint," said Jeff White, a former Defense Intelligence Agency official now at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.
