Not Really Good Infantry

One of the problems with special operations forces is that higher headquarters often forget that they are not just really good infantry. It is a mistake to simply plug them in as just another line infantry outfit for a mission that any infantry unit can do.

Are we making this mistake with our special forces in this war? This article says we are misusing our SEALS as grunts.

I sure hope not. Five years into war we shouldn't be making rookie mistakes like this.

Save the snake eaters for snake-eating missions.
