This is a neat look at the growing role of special forces in conflicts. Apparently, Rummy is really rethinking how "we do business" and his ideas focusing on the most effective use of special forces is really paying off. I love the implications of this quote:

A senior U.S. military official told TIME that Rumsfeld has ordered more special-forces personnel to be "forward deployed"—that is, stationed overseas—and some will be given the same kind of civilian cover that intelligence agents get in order to stay closer to the action.
