As the Hague tribunal concludes, remember the role of US and British special forces | Washington Examiner

With the Hague justice tribunal now concluding, it’s worth remembering the role that American and British special operations forces played in capturing many Bosnian-Serb war criminals.

The individuals on the target lists were the war’s worst of the worst. Responsible for Nazi-style concentration camps and genocidal rampages, they turned a beautiful land into a hellish dystopia.

 Fortunately, hunting them down across the 1990s were elements of Britain’s 22nd Special Air Service, Seal Team Six, and Delta Force.

And what characterized the various snatch operations was patient intelligence collection and innovative tactics. The special operations forces would sometimes spend weeks in the field, waiting for a suspect to pass their location.
