520    Although prisoner of war and detainee operations 
       ultimately tend to become quite extensive, military 
       planners and policymakers have repeatedly treated such 
       operations as an afterthought. In reality, such operations
       can be a central part of the successful prosecution of a 
       conflict. Determining how to gain knowledge from, hold, 
       question, influence, and release captured adversaries can 
       be an important component of military strategy and 
       doctrine, both during the conflict and in reconstruction 
       afterward. This monograph finds parallels in U.S. prisoner
       and detainee operations in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, 
       and Iraq: underestimation of the number to be held, hasty 
       scrambling for resources to meet operational needs, and 
       inadequate doctrine and policy. During the later phases of
       military operations, an attempt is often made to educate 
       prisoners and detainees and influence their social and 
       political values. The results of a survey by RAND 
       researchers of Iraq detainees contravene many assumptions 
       that had been guiding decisions related to detainee 
       operations. The survey found that local and personal 
       motives, along with nationalism, were more prevalent than 
       religious ones and that detainees were often economic 
       opportunists rather than illiterates seeking economic 
       subsistence through the insurgency. Recommendations 
       include that detailed doctrine should be in place prior to
       detention and that detainees should be surveyed when first
