[size=4]1,300 enemy men killed by handful of Green Berets[/size=4] By Ben Fenton in Washington(Filed:08/01/2002) AN American special forces team was credited yesterday with the deaths of 1,300 Taliban and al-Qa'eda fighters and the destruction of more than 50 tanks and other pieces of heavy weaponry. The so-called A-team, codenamed Tiger 03, which directed American bombers to enemy positions, helped to unseat the Taliban and made a huge contribution to the war, its commander said. The first details of the covert operations of the A-teams, each composed of up to 18 lightly armed infantrymen and air controllers, were released after the Pentagon allowed reporters to spend three days with different units operating within Afghanistan. "We killed a lot of people here," "Kevin", the senior non-commissioned officer in Tiger 03, told USA Today. Tiger 03 was one of at least a dozen Green Beret teams inserted by helicopter from Pakistan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan after Oct 20.

Get some, Green Beanies! The only problem I have is that that number doesn't even make a dent in the ten-to-one payback math I live by.

While the title sounds great, the fact is that the Air Force, B52 bombers and crews, armament technicians and a whole lot of other people had a major hand in this.
