Link to article.: http://www.fayobserver.com:80/article?id=270702 Military hearing on SF case may force changes in ROEs At this time, I agree with the former SF Commander (In Bold) below. What do they expect when they supply a list of "kill-or-capture" people on it, especially when your dealing with suicide bombers and wannabe martyrs. There is already a lot of discussion within the SF community on this incident. Of couse, most agree with the SF Commander I quoted. It stymies everything creativity, calculated risk-taking, all of the latitude and creativity that you must use in Afghanistan, said a former Special Forces commander who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Without that, were doomed to do the same old stuff. It is a recipe for defeat. He said the Article 32 is a classic example of leadership by penmanship. The top commanders of Special Forces, he said, may pay lip service to creative thinking but theyve made their careers by being cautious. They color inside the lines, he said. They grew up in a box factory. Maj. Counts, the Special Forces spokesman, said the Article 32 investigation is to determine the facts of the case and should not have any adverse effect on future operations. Honest people can have differing observations from their perspective of view, Counts said. The purpose of the Article 32 is to understand all points of view.
