Blue Light was the early specialized US Army COunter Terrorist force. I believe it was running in tandem with a possibly US Marines or similar - the
European Armies such as Germany were conducting similar tests with squads similar. This is BEFORE the time of GSG9 or KSK. The idea was various people
with linked military organizations saw a need for a dedicated Counter terrorist force because of the increasing threat from terrorist action.
Both Blue Light in US and the European equivilant has very little success in providing counter terrorist procedures that worked at that time.
AS SAS, Delta etc started becoming more involved in producing Counter terrorist procedures, Blue Light faded into the background - possibly with
personnel from the Blue Light involvement, becoming involved with the Delta Organisation. At this stage I believe Blue Light was disbanded.
This is the info I have.
Suggest finding books on Delta Force as Ive seen various references to Blue Light in these. Lee Haneys Delta book was the first i noticed this in.
Hope that gives you some idea.
