"The U.S. Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC, pronounced: JAY-sock) is best known for the Osama bin Laden raid. But it has long served as the president’s secret army, planning and executing the most dangerous, highly classified missions of the United States military. In 2009, its snipers rescued an American ship captain held captive by Somali pirates. In 2003, JSOC hunted down and captured Saddam Hussein near Tikrit, Iraq. In 1993, two Delta snipers earned posthumous Congressional Medals of Honor for actions during the Battle of Mogadishu (a JSOC operation portrayed in © Yslb Pak/Xinhua Press/Corbis Black Hawk Down). And before that, members of the Command were tracking Scud missiles during the Gulf War and slithering down ropes in Panama. Here are a few things about the president’s secret army that you might not know."

1. When you hear “Delta Force” or “SEAL Team Six,” they’re talking about
JSOC.
2. When SEAL Team Six was established, there were only two SEAL teams.
3. JSOC can reconstruct documents that have been burned.
4. The aircraft used in the Bin Laden raid were from Area 51.
5. The president’s secret army is everywhere.
6. There is a rivalry between Delta Force and SEAL Team Six.
7. There is a JSOC base in a major European airport.
8. General Stanley McChrystal was known as the Pope.
9. JSOC built courtrooms in Iraq.
10. There was a JSOC equivalent to the Department of Pre-Crime.

Why should we really worry about war against us? Why do you think we even HAVE tech from Area 51 and others? To use it and programs like this one.

Ah yes, the old Delta Force, Seal Team rivalry. Always my favorite football game of the year!
I cannot conceive of reconstructing a document that has been burned to carbon. Really, even if you could get the paper together, where is the ink, and how do you reconnect it into words. Or is it just... JSOC is THAT badass...
I don't even know.

Well, they have had orders for the middle east for at least a year or so by now.....
That kind of presence could have laid a lot of groundwork by now.
This new moma ship they are sending for JSOC i assume ,or is it for the SEAL exclusive use?
Either way they must be planning operating in the area for some time to come....
Thinking of mc chrystal, i guess hed be pope on a rope now hey>

Yes, and the training of the M.E.K. in Nevada.

‘Top Secret America’: A look at the military’s Joint Special Operations Command

This article, adapted from a chapter of the newly released “Top Secret America: The Rise of the New American Security State,” by Washington Post reporters Dana Priest and William M. Arkin, chronicles JSOC’s spectacular rise, much of which has not been publicly disclosed before. Two presidents and three secretaries of defense routinely have asked JSOC to mount intelligence-gathering missions and lethal raids, mostly in Iraq and Afghanistan, but also in countries with which the United States was not at war, including Yemen, Pakistan, Somalia, the Philippines, Nigeria and Syria.

“The CIA doesn’t have the size or the authority to do some of the things we can do,” said one JSOC operator.

The US Governemtn is working around the clock to implement more and more robotics for the use of military applications.

Already the whitehouse has UAVs and unmanned aircraft patrolling the skies.

You see a man has emotions, fears, angry sadness.

Some day a man wakes up and he feels good, he believes in his cause, RIGHT?

Another day a man wakes up, maybe he has been mistreated by his boss, or some days he has fears RIGHT?

A secret service agent, the president's guard, the president's troops is just like any other man. Although through the training nad discipline they try to make this man more of a machine. They take the man and they tell him to do a certain thing at acertain time every day, they say do this, do that, they create DISCIPLINE, but they try to DEHUMANIZE.

The problem is you cannot ever DEHUMANIZE a man,because one day the ma will still have his soul.Still thinks about himself more than the other.

So for instance a man is supposed to DIE for the president, but that is really hard to do RIGHT? I mean could you ignore your mind and jump in front of the bullet.

No way. Not every time.

Some days yes the man will jump in front of the bullet heading for a public figure. And when he does he is a hero, he is a sacrifice. But other times he gets scared, he has fear, he runs for his own safety.

Robitic applications help in this way. So the government is really using robotics to protect the president.

Have you see nthe movie AIR force ONE? There is a scene in it when they fire a missile at the plane of the president and the fighter pilot has to fly in FRONT of the missile to deflect it. No man can be asked to do this,. But a UAV? AN unmanned drone? No problem. In fact it would do so gladfully because it is programmed to do that.

So a man uses the machine to strengthen his army.

Don't be surprised if you see one of these standing next to the president during a press conference in 10 years or less!!!
