Special Ops Tech Pulled in Different Directions | National defense

Must Read

Special Operations Command has its hands full with a shift to the Indo-Pacific, a constant eye on the Middle East, and the possibility of an escalating conflict in Eastern Europe. However, SOCOM chief Army Gen. Richard Clarke recently noted that this is not unusual.


In a keynote address at the Special Operations Forces Industry Conference, which was held by the National Defense Industrial Association, he stated that over 6,000 special operators are now working with partners in 80 countries. As the U.S. military ends more than two decades of emphasis on counterterrorism, Clarke welcomed the Defense Department’s strategic pivot to the Indo-Pacific. In the same speech, he described a recent trip to the Middle East to visit an information operations center. He also highlighted a mission in Syria, where U.S. special operators and their Syrian allies conducted a night raid to eliminate an ISIS leader.

SOCOM is in the process of writing a Special Operations Forces 2040 document that will look at some of the challenges the command will face at the end of the next decade, Clarke said.
