    The media is dumb, any unit from SOCOM is called SF.

    That's what I thought, just trying to confirm it.

    With that said, the mission had 4 choppas. That a pretty large element, so more than likely it was either multi SF teams, or Rangers.

    Syria can fuck off. When Israel bombed their under-construction nuclear facilities last year those hadjis said they were "cement factories"

    think about it... i doubt it was rangers, who are a task force under CORPS control... it was higher then that were talking CENTCOM... think delta maybe.

    that story was citing special forces.
    an sf team is 12 men. it would be oh too easy to get several a teams together for that mission. or cag(combat arms group) guys, who are sf. (cag=delta fyi,aka asymmetrical warfare group... and they are sf but on a "d" team instead of an "a" team, thus the designation "delta force".) so, sf can either be sf or delta. but sof is all the following; sf, ca, psyop, 75 rangers, 160th soar. regular rangers are not sof. only the 75th rangers. now you know.
