A source from inside U.S. Special Operations Command has reported that the story told by news source SOFREP about the disbanding of the Green Beret Crisis Response Force is not entirely accurate. The source stated that while the CRF is not being used to their full capacity, they will not be disbanded, only considered for more flexible roles. Defense Secretary Mark Esper has commented that they are investigating the use of the CRF and will look to optimize their capabilities, not disband the units. Other missions and units are also going to be evaluated, such as the contribution to the Multinational Force and Observers mission on the Sinai peninsula.
