...I almost posted this in the Adversary/Threat forum (http://council.smallwarsjournal.com/forumdisplay.php?f=51), but after reflection, figured it would make a better read here. This time (14 Feb 07), the Terrorism, Unconventional Threats and Capabilities Subcommittee received testimony on the challenges posed to SOCOM posed by the global terrorist threat. This makes for a natural follow-on read after that on SOCOM's manning, equipping and readiness...
