    A more believable account is here:
    The missions are projected, not current.

    Not credible. Those words would mean death to "commandos."

    These media people know how to twist the words, to mean something else entirely.

    Thanks Bill for pointing out the correct version, which looks to be the creditable version.

    I really like the idea of a conference starting with a Golf Tournament, sets the tempo for the rest of the session.

    I wonder if US SF would parachute into hostile territory and hang around for long.

    I think the General was speaking for a domestic audience and let loose one detail too many..I bet the US and South Korean SF are in North Korea ..

    I have worked at an HQ. In my experience, many generals would benefit from having a handler.

    Only in support of an insurgency, if I understand the SF mission. The mission BG Tolley describes would be suitable for Marine Recon, I believe.
