Lightbulb Modern Jedburgh's

Would the deployment of Jedburgh teams into Syrian/Afghan territory be practical and beneficial to our nation winning the dilemma against Assad and the war on ISIS and Afghanistan? Can can we (U.S) employ the same tactics that once worked for the OSS and SOE (F)in France and other European nations, in Afghanistan and Syria today? I feel that it's a plausible strategy and we are in a perfect position to begin deploying these teams. Syrian rebels are constantly taking over locations and defeating Assad. Fortunately, their is a strong, strong opposition against Assad's regime to begin with, within the country's territory so;
1) Can we be positive that our enemy does not have the technology for counter-surveillence? If so, who is supplying them and are the suppliers capable of eaves dropping on possible ally teams (Russia, China, etc...)?
2) What would be a good starting point for teams to begin this strategy, Where & Who (the enemy & possible resistance force)?
3) How could we disrupt Afghan/Syrian/ISIS supplies, strategies, manpower?

Let me know what you guys think!

That would be a mission of the Special Forces (Green Berets), and yes they do that sort of thing these days. It is also a mission that is very sensitive to enemy intelligence & so is not publicized. When you read about US Army trainers or advisors loaned to a nation SF teams or individuals are likely among that group.

Back in 2002 the Afgani Northern Alliance armies who defeated the Taliban were heavily salted with Special Forces teams.

It's fair to mention that all western European NATO countries have units that train with U.S. Special Forces, and participate in guerrilla warfare scenario exercises. British SAS, French 1st RPIMa, Spanish GOE, and others.

So does the CIA special activities division.

And CIA. The books Jawbreaker and First In are good reads about this.
