|Yeah, you probably figured this was coming with all of the talk today about TF 145 playing a role in the killing of Zarqawi...but here is my question:
How are the Task Force's set up, and what units are in them? I know that CAG, Devgru, and CIA SAD play a role in the TF, but how is each small unit setup? I have no idea how large a JSOC TF is (I would around 50 operators or less...platoon size), but is each small unit (squad size) made up of operators from one particular unit (ie: Squad 1 is CAG, Squad 2 is Devgru, Squad 3 is SAD, Squad 4 is Special Tactics...etc), or are they mixed (Squad 1 is CAG, DEVGRU, SAD, and Special Tactics...etc)? I also heard that the SAS was in one JSOC Taskforce (I believe 145).
These Task Forces seem to be successful in Iraq (with the Capture of Saddam and killing of Zarqawi), but you hear no mention of any airstrikes/searches for Osama in Afghanistan.
