So with a victory in hand, we’ll find out what Gov. Scott will pursue next. The death of 30 special operations personnel focuses a new spotlight on the war in Afghanistan and the small teams of elite troops that operate there. Military analyst Bing West recently told Congress that these small teams are the forces of the future while the US is in Afghanistan.
