1) 01: Giannetti, in his article “A Duty to Warn” claims U.S. Air Force cyber, intelligence, and counter-intelligence professionals are bound to protect Department of Defense and public networks from the spread of “corrosive” Russian disinformation.

Why or why not? 2)02: Should a counter-disinformation task force be a purely Air Force-led endeavor (led by AFOSI and/or 24th Air Force)? Or, would it be better suited to supporting a federally organized unit, like a cyber JTTF for this matter? Why?
