    Alright, I took an oath or two, once or twice, to follow the Commander In Chief. Whoever we elect.

    I don't know what people's opinion of Marc Ambinder is here, but I found this article he posted yesterday that has some pretty interesting stuff. Of course, all of his sources are off the record.

    Forgive me if this is all old.

    Then Came ‘Geronimo’ [/SIZE]

    Choice bits:

    JSOC has fought a silent but successful proxy war against Iran’s Revolutionary Guards—even, National Journal has learned, engaging directly with its soldiers in at least three countries.

    . . .

    Delta tracked down Iranian arms merchants in Afghanistan.
    Direct combat with the IRGC?

    JSOC’s warriors inverted the way that asymmetric warfare is fought by becoming a little bit like crime-scene investigators. Using techniques as simple as basic forensics and as advanced as Radio Frequency Identification chip technology that remains highly classified, JSOC forces sought to move faster than the enemy and to get inside the decision loop of terrorists and insurgents.

    JSOC brought intelligence analysts to the battlefield and created fusion centers so that evidence that might help identify terrorist plots could be processed as soon as it was found, rather than languishing in an FBI lab back in the States. The operators were in the same room with the intelligence analysts. JSOC “borrowed” surveillance and reconnaissance assets from the rest of the military, becoming its own hotbed of intelligence analysis. The operational tempo increased significantly. The time between the flash and the bang seemed to become as short as that between lightning and thunder. You raided a house, you found evidence, you processed it, and you were on to the next battle, quickly and efficiently.

    Of course, this didn’t happen overnight. It took three years to hone JSOC’s crime-scene techniques. McChrystal’s exacting and iconoclastic intelligence chief, Maj. Gen. Michael Flynn, has complained that the rest of the intelligence establishment was slow to catch on. Flynn will soon take a position at the office of the Director of National Intelligence where he can spread his techniques and theories throughout the intelligence community.
    The tidbit about Flynn is especially reassuring. I wonder how he'll advance/evolve National Intelligence.

    CIA allowed to search bin Laden compound: report

    WASHINGTON: Pakistan has agreed to permit the CIA to send in a forensic team to search Osama bin Laden's compound, the US paper reported Thursday, citing US officials.

    The CIA team will arrive at the compound in Abbottabad within days to thoroughly search the residence where US Navy commandos killed bin Laden on May 2 in a unilateral raid that angered Islamabad, the report said.

    "The assault team was there for only 40 minutes," an unnamed US official told the paper. "The aim is to return to the site -- to do another, more thorough, look."

    why so late after the fact? Its not like the SEALS didnt do any house cleaning in the short time they were there. And whatever data they can find will probably be cold/outdated given the time from the raid till now.

    There are rumors Bin Ladin's body has washed up on the shores of Oregon with some debris from the tsunami that hit Japan.
