Since the Ben Ghazi attack, you are correct. They had no ready reaction plan last year!!!<quoted text>There are special op teams already operating in the area and it wouldn't take very long for them to deploy anywhere in Africa.
By the way, our forces in Africa come under our Africa Command whereas our people in Italy, Spain, etc. come under USAREUR whose headquarters is now in Wiesbaden, Germany. They were in Heidelberg but they moved a few years ago.
