Throw a dart at a map of the world on the wall in your den and chance are, the U.S. is carrying out a commando mission there.
In fact, last year, Karen DeYoung and Greg Jaffe of the Washington Post reported that U.S. Special Operations forces were deployed in 75 countries, up from 60 at the end of the Bush presidency.
By the end of this year, U.S. Special Operations Command spokesman Colonel Tim Nye admitted that number will likely reach 120. “We do a lot of traveling, a lot more than Afghanistan or Iraq,” he said recently.
This global presence, in about 60 percent of the world’s nations, and far larger than previously acknowledged, provides new evidence of the rising clandestine Pentagon power elite waging secret war in all corners of the planet.
