USAF Combat Controllers are operating in Afghanistan and Iraq with the SF guys. They're the FAC for the CAS birds. Yeah I know, lots of people say they aren't "REAL" SF guys, because they don't do the same things the other units do, but when the bullets are flying and the birds are rolling in, they're everyones best friend.

What are you talking about??? How do you know this? because some guy wrote it in a book?
I can sort of understand making a statement towards a unit being there....but to say that units were not there before other units is crazy talk. At least when it comes to this kind of stuff, most of thier stuff is classified anyways...so how would you know if they were not there??? huh??

Members of the SBS took part in the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003. They were involved in the beginning days, taking part in amphibious landings on the Al-Faw Peninsula near the port of Umm Qasr. Later, teams were inserted into Northern Iraq to conduct reconnaissance and sabotage missions.
