Current Operations

  • U.S. Begins Counterterrorism Training in Georgia Washington File 30 May 2002-- Waltemeyer: The bottom line is, they're being trained in standard combined-arms operations that they would conduct in the type of terrain we find here. That's predominantly plateau and some low mountains. And we'll be able to operate to conduct light infantry operations as they would in a counterinsurgency environment -- specifically Pankisi. We are not going to the Pankisi, have no plans to go to Pankisi. However, if you look at previous press releases, it will say "Pankisi-like conditions," and that implies, obviously, a light-infantry-based requirement.

Defense Policy / Programs

  • Rumsfeld, Pace Pentagon Briefing Transcript Washington File 30 May 2002-- Pace: Regardless, we take very seriously the fact that that our opponents do have surface-to-air missiles, shoulder-fired surface-to-air-missiles.

They operate in some 60 countries -- al Qaeda alone operates in some 60 countries around the world, including a number in East Asia; that they've made no secret of their desire to attack any targets that they consider Western, modern, democratic; and that this is a threat, I think, to all of us.
