Lang comments, "Comment: This increase in partisan activity probably reflects the presence of US Special Forces soldiers (Green Berets) advising and training. This is our preferred mode of operation. It is why we were created. DOL. pl" Interesting that he, in a position to know, cites this type of activity as the speciality of the special forces. I had thought of assassination as the speciality of the operational division of the CIA rather than the military. Learn something every day.)
