Last week's story about parachuting S.F. guys into N. Korea barely made the news. This week the commander who let the cat out of the bag has been reassigned.

Was he speaking truth? If so, he certainly violated the secrecies act. But his punishment is just reassignment?

The Atlantic did a nice rundown on why its unlikely he was telling the truth.

I knew he would get reassigned.

Sent to recon tunnels? That doesn't make sense anyway. How could an American get access to an active occupied tunnel complex without being detected?

I dunno but i can think of several ways we could map a system from the surface. a tunnel might not show against the ground from a space but might be detectable from close range and a GPS plot could be made.

I would suspect that if whoever commands the SF had not sent them into NK, he would be relieved of command.
