|Does anyone here have any serious info on the CIA Special Activites Division? Any books on the group or any other serious info? How they are recruited, the type of training they recieve, what they specialize in, the number of personel, and/or their battle history?
I can't find much info on them (at least, not in books, magazines, or the CIA website...other than they were in TF 121 that helped capture Saddam Hussein and are mostly made up of former US SOF), and of all the SOF groups that the US operates, they certainly seem to be the least known or least publicized. I am considering emailing the CIA, but I doubt I'd get a response on such a classified group. I've always been curious as to what goes at The Farm, but my best guess is they are sort of a 'splinter' group of the US government who acts both as traditional SF (training indigs, etc), CT (raiding houses), and acting as spooks (collecting intel)...so basically like US SFOD-D.
