Re: Mysterious fatal crash offers rare look at U.S. commando presence in Mali
Sorry I'm late back to this thread, but I was curious what exactly you meant by this. Is this a dig at those guys being called SOF because they aren't an 18 series MOS? If it is, you might want to read up a little on INSCOM. You won't find much on them, especially where that certain MSG might work, and for a reason. Not to imply that I know, but there are so many things, missions and units out there that you've never heard of, it would blow your mind. And 90% of it does not involve kicking doors. Hats off to the SF guys, they are top notch, but it's time for everyone to stop thinking that just because someone's not wearing a green beenie and sporting a long tab they aren't a bit better than average joe.

And no, they probably didn't have beards because it's Africa. "18 series guys would not have been caught" implies that you believe they were up to no good. You weren't there and you don't know. It even says in the article they have no reason to believe they were partaking in the services offered by those they were with. For all you know they were working sources. And for all I know I could be totally way off base and talking out of my ass. But that's my point, no one here knows, so don't be so quick to read into it.
If I'm totally off what you were talking about then just ignore me.
What you know about growin' beards, haters?
