Operation Neptune Spear - Osama bin Laden Hideout

 

 

Operation Neptune Spear은 오사마빈라덴 작전으로 잘 알려진 작전명입니다.

 

얼마전 우연히 미국 현지 한 모임에서 이 작전에 참가한 ST6팀 대원과 이야기 할 기회가 있었고, 그를 통해 작전에 대한 속이야기 약간과 사진을 접할 수 있는 좋은 시간이 있었습니다.

 

단 사진의 경우 유출이 되는 것을 극히 꺼리기 때문에 사진 자체를 올리지 못함을 이해해 주십시요.

 

이 작전은 잘 알려진대로 CIA계획팀과 Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC)의 합동작전으로 입안되었고, 초기엔 B2기를 동원한 폭격과 미군과 파키스탄군의 합동 작전을 생각했었지만 파키스탄군과 정부에 대한 믿음 부족으로 작전은 미군 특수전 자산으로만 진행을 하게 됩니다.

 

McRaven 제독은 ST6의 레드스쿼드론을 전술팀으로 구성하게 되는데 이들은 파병 주기가 맞아 이들이 부대에서 떠난다고 해도 전혀 다른 이들의 주목을 끌지 않았을 것이며 이들의 작전 능력이 이번 작전을 충분히 소화할 수 있다는 믿음도 이들이 동원된 것에 한몫을 했다고 합니다. (혹자들은 해군 제독이 작전을 입안해 같은 해군인 이들이 동원되었다고 하기도 합니다.^^;;)

 

전술팀은 크게 두팀으로 나뉘어 져서 한팀은 패스트로프로 투입되었고 지인의 경우 그라운드 팀으로 두번째 헬기에 탑승해 컴파운드 밖 지상으로 투입되어 외벽에 차지를 해 폭파 후 돌입을 했다고 합니다.

 

지상 전술팀의 경우 군견을 보유하고 있었는데 이들은 일반적인 K9이 아닌 공격견으로 티타늄 잇빨을 가지고 있었다고 합니다.(거듭된 훈련으로 이를 티타늄으로 교체)

 

지상 전술팀이 진입하자 컴파운드 내에 있던 저항세력 1명이 반대방향으로 도망을 갔고, 군견병이 군견을 풀자 이 군견은 바로 도망가는 탈레반 얼굴을 공격해 그 자리에서 절명을 시켰다고 합니다. 이 장면은 작전지역 상공에서 체공하고 있던 UAV를 통해 모두 녹화 되었다고 합니다.

 

건물에 내부에 진입해서 빈라덴을 사살한 일련의 공격에 대해선 이야기 들은 것도 있지만, 밝히지 말아 달라는 부탁이 있어 밝히지 못함을 이해해 주십시요.

단 언론에 공개된 것과 같습니다만, 공개되지 있는 몇가지 작은 디테일들을 제외하고는 같다고 생각하시면 됩니다.

 

그럼 저의 질문이었기도 하며 모든 밀리터리 매니아들이 관심이 있어 할 오사마빈라덴을 쓰러트린 두명의 대원이 들었던 무장에 대한 설명입니다.

 

두명의 무장에 대한 두 장의 사진을 봤고 그중 한장은 입수를 했지만, 사진 자체를 발설하지 않겠다는 약속을 했기 때문에 글로서 기술하고자 합니다.

 

대원1

- HK 416(상하부 모두 AOR도장, 이오택, PAQ 슈어파이어 스카웃라잇 부착, 개조된 트리거파트)
- M79 40mm 유탄발사기(소드오프 모델로 AOR패턴)
- MP7(상하부 모두 AOR 패턴 도장, 소음기부착/AAC?, GEMTEC?/주야간 조준경부착/PAQ)

- SIG P226N(개조그립)
*특징: 이 대원이 예술을 전공한 대원이 아닐까 싶게 모든걸 깔맞춤 도장을 했더군요.^^

대원2

- HK416상부, 타회사 하부(상부만 코요태 위장색상으로 착색되어 있음, 이오택, PAQ, 스카웃라잇부착, 개조된 트리거파트)

- SIG P226N

 

두 대원 모두 일반적인 ST6의 무장으로 작전에 임했었던거 같습니다.

Obama Plan Would Slash Army, Limit Ability to Endure Long-Term Conflicts

WASHINGTON—President Barack Obama on Thursday proposed a historic shift in the U.S. military's size and ambitions, scaling back its ability to wage the type of war and occupation that just concluded in Iraq as the administration seeks to cut defense spending over the next decade.

Under the proposal, the Army would face a 14% reduction in troops—leaving it with too few to conduct two grueling ground wars at once, long a strategic imperative of the Defense Department. The plan also indicates reductions in the nation's nuclear arsenal and a delay in the Pentagon's most expensive weapons, such as the F-35 stealth jet made by Lockheed Martin Corp.

President Obama unveiled a new defense strategy Thursday that creates a "leaner" and "agile" military that uses smaller conventional ground forces amid cuts in federal spending.. Julian Barnes has details on The News Hub. Photo: AP

Overall, the plan envisions shrinking military spending by $487 billion over 10 years, a cut of about 8% in coming years, according to Pentagon figures. While the president has wide latitude to set military priorities, specific cuts the Pentagon will announce in coming weeks must be approved by Congress.

President Obama said the nation was "turning the page" on a decade of war. But the president and Pentagon leaders said they weren't abandoning the U.S. role as the pre-eminent global power

"Our military will be leaner, but the world must know the United States is going to maintain our military superiority with armed forces that are agile, flexible and ready for the full range of contingencies and threats," he said in a rare appearance by a president at the Pentagon.

Announcement of the strategy prompted a swift response from Republicans. Sen John McCain (R., Ariz.) said the U.S. couldn't afford a "budget-driven defense strategy" but said he would review the document released by the administration. "I understand the need for reductions in defense spending, but we must also address the broader cultural problem plaguing our defense establishment: the waste, inefficiency, and ineffective programs," Sen. McCain said.

Retired Army Lt. Gen. David Barno of the Center for a New American Security, a centrist think tank that often is aligned with the administration, said the plan "fails to address the elephant in the room: whether this strategy can hold up under the weight of further defense cuts," particularly additional cuts contained in the debt-ceiling agreement Congress reached last year.

But Charles Knight, co-director of the Project on Defense Alternatives, which advocates more aggressive defense-spending cuts, said the administration's plans were "only baby steps" toward greater fiscal restraint.

"The first strategic priority of the United States today is to get its economic house in order," he said. "Doing this means spending less on the military in coming years."

Criticism is likely to grow in coming weeks as details of the cuts emerge. Key Republican presidential candidates, including Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, have proposed increases in defense spending, and have criticized proposed Pentagon cutbacks in the past.

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said the military still will be able to respond to multiple crises at once, deterring aggression around the globe. "Make no mistake, we will have the capability to confront and defeat more than one adversary at a time," he said.

But, he said, "the Army and Marine Corps will no longer be sized to support the large-scale, long-term stability operations that dominated military priorities…over the past decade."

Mr. Obama said he wouldn't repeat the mistakes of past administrations by crippling the military through postwar cuts. But some Pentagon officials—anxious to stave off the possibility of further reductions—said the proposed reductions will be as deep as those after Vietnam and the Cold War when cuts in annual emergency war spending are counted.

Details of the cuts will be announced in coming weeks as part of the Pentagon budget.

Defense officials said the Army, currently at 570,000, likely will shrink to about 490,000.

A strategy document released Thursday said the military will be redesigned to fight one war using air, land and sea forces, while still being able to take on involvements in another region.

Mr. Panetta and defense contractors have argued for months that the planned cuts, while tolerable, are quite steep. But they have contended that an additional $500 billion to $600 billion in cuts over the next 10 years triggered by last year's congressional deal on the country's debt ceiling would be ruinous for the military.

"The capability, readiness and agility of the force will not be sustained if Congress fails to do its duty and the military is forced to accept far deeper cuts," Mr. Panetta said Thursday. "That would force us to shed missions and commitments and capabilities that we believe are necessary to protect core U.S. national security interests. And it would result in what we think would be a demoralized and hollow force."

The strategy document reflects the Obama administration's preference for operations such as the war in Libya, which entailed a large coalition of nations and no U.S. ground forces. The strategy also touts the utility of U.S. special operations forces, which have decimated the leadership of al Qaeda.

Also emphasized in the new strategy are counterterrorism operations—missions using special operations forces that create only a small overseas footprint and work with local forces.

Intelligence and surveillance will take on increasingly important roles, meaning the Air Force fleet of unmanned drones is likely to grow.

A new U.S. emphasis on Asia is reinforced by the strategy as the Pentagon plans to shift its focus and resources away from Europe. The Pentagon sees challenges in China's military modernization and is planning the new military approach to more aggressively counter Beijing's "anti-access" technologies, weapons such as China's DF-21D antiship ballistic missile, used for keeping U.S. ships at greater distances.

Mr. Obama approved a buildup of forces in Afghanistan, but administration officials have always viewed counterinsurgency operations with skepticism. The new strategy reflects the administration's view that counterinsurgency conflicts are too costly, while yielding murky results and incremental gains for international security.

Defense officials said they wouldn't abandon the military's expertise in conducting stability operations, but would move some of the resources to military reserves. That would preserve the ability of the Army to conduct limited counterinsurgency.

Virus hits US drone fleet: report


A computer virus has hit the US Predator and Reaper drone fleet that Washington deploys to hunt down militants, logging the keystrokes of pilots remotely flying missions, Wired magazine reported.

The virus was first detected about two weeks ago by the military's Host-Based Security System, but it had not halted missions flown remotely over Afghanistan and other warzones from Nevada's Creech Air Force Base, Wired said Friday.

No classified information was believed to have been lost or sent outside the network, though the resilient virus resisted several attempts to remove it.

"We keep wiping it off, and it keeps coming back," a source familiar with the network infection told the US magazine. "We think it's benign. But we just don't know."

Military network security specialists said it remained unclear whether the virus was intentional and how far it had spread, but they were certain it had infected Creech's classified and unclassified machines. Secret data may thus have leaked out and reached someone outside military officials.

The US military does not hide its own drone flights in Libya or the war in Afghanistan, in contrast to the CIA's covert missions to take out Al-Qaeda extremists in Pakistan, Yemen and elsewhere. The drones have become a critical weapon of choice for the United States in fighting militants abroad.

In Pakistan alone, around 30 drone strikes have been reported since elite US forces killed Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden on May 2 near the country's main military academy in Abbottabad, close to the capital.

The virus is believed to have spread at Creech through removable hard drives used to load map updates and transfer mission videos from one computer to another, Wired said. Drone units at other US Air Force bases around the world have now been told to stop using them.

"It's getting a lot of attention," the source told Wired. "But no one's panicking. Yet."
