ODAs and Phantom 1 are to establish a forward base within Kujari Province on the Eastern border of Burkina Faso NLT 10APR20. MSOC and Phantom 2 will redeploy to Burkina Faso NLT 12APR20. Intel indicates the situation on the ground is volatile with multiple warlords vying for control of the area. Boko Haram is likely using this chaos to stay hidden. Task Force Cobra will exploit this dynamic and decisively locate and remove chemical components, means of assembly, and funding being used by Boko Haram. Boko Haram's acquisition of these components is a severe threat. Assembly is likely already beginning. Identifying Boko Haram's likely targets, avenues of distribution, and weapon location are critical IOT take preventative measures against a chemical weapon deployment. Preventing another chemical weapon attack is the highest priority for Task Force Cobra and USSOCOM at this time. Prioritize accordingly. Signed, Lieutenant Colonel C. Williams Commanding Joint Special Task Force Cobra ATTACHMENTS burkinafaso.jpg
  2. //SECRET//JSOC//MARSOC From: [email protected] <Thomas Godfrey> To: [email protected] <Clark Williams> Subject: RE: Chemical Weapons Intel Summary You are authorized for immediate redeployment. Your primary mission set has been changed to tracking down and removing these chemical agents, dealers, and suppliers. EUCOM has been notified of your upcoming arrival and has prepared Naval Air Station Sigonella in Sicily for your arrival. Keep me updated with your progress. Signed, General Thomas A. Godfrey III Commanding United States Special Operations Command //SECRET//JSOC//MARSOC From: [email protected] <Clark Williams> To: [email protected] <Mark Stanton>, [email protected] <Sean Whelan>, [email protected] <Jim Teival> Subject: Notice of Immediate Redeployment Task Force Cobra has been tasked with tracking and removing the chemical agents discovered to have been transported to the Mediterranean. Phantom 2 and the MSOC will be immediately transiting to Air Station Sigonella in Sicily. The MSOC will be responsible for making landfall on Malden Island and securing a compound to establish a COP. Preliminary intel indicates the island is controlled by a separate group of pirates and armed militants. The level of control they exert over the island is not currently known, but it is thought to be somewhat less than the Ikan. As Iglas were included in the shipping manifest and the status of enemy forces on the ground is not known, a COP must be established and a secure flight path into the COP must be cleared before 160th may deploy to the island. Once the COP is established, and a flight path is cleared, the 160th will deploy with Phantom 2. Phantom 2 will begin immediately confirming the location of the ports used for transit and identifying the second vessel that is shipping chemical agents. The MSOC will then be responsible for direct action missions against these targets. The ODAs and Phantom 1 will retain control of the COP in the Ikan Archipelago until they are relieved by other US forces or USSOCOM terminates operations in the Ikan. Departure from the Ikan will be at 0200 local, 19MAR20, with a flight time of approximately 12 hours to Sicily where the local time upon arrival will be 0900 local, 19MAR20. Operations are clear to commence at first dark unless a daylight infil plan can be provided that does not jeopardize forces upon arrival. Signed, Lieutenant Colonel C. Williams Commanding Joint Special Task Force Cobra WEATHER REPORT Highs of 63F/17C with humidity up to 80%. Mostly sunny during the days, clear in the late evening and overnight.

  4. //SECRET//JSOC//MARSOC From: [email protected] <Clark Williams> To: [email protected] <Thomas Godfrey> Subject: Chemical Weapons Intel Summary Intel recovered from a seized cargo ship has indicated chemical weapon components have recently been transported through the Ikan archipelago into the Mediterranean. The signature on several documents belongs to one Viktor Vasilyev, a Russian national who helped supply the materials for the 2018 chemical attack in Baghdad as well as supplying chemical components to Iran during 2018 and 2019. He evaded capture on numerous occasions during Operation Desert Dragon and recent intel from the CIA indicates he has expanded his clientele over the last year as a result of his higher-profile successes. Viktor Vasilyev (ROUGHCOAT) The port in the Ikan appears to have been used as a halfway stop between China or Eastern Russia and the Mediterranean. Recovered location logs and a Bill of Landing indicate this ship was on a return journey from an island in the southern Mediterranean where it offloaded Iglas, hazmat gear, Methylphosphonyl Difluoride, and Methylphosphoric Acid, which are components needed to create sarin. Email correspondences were recovered between this ship's captain, Siafa Osmani, Viktor Vasilyev, and one Zhao Qiu who is believed to be the captain of a second vessel. These correspondences contained basic instructions on the creation of sarin and were likely passed onto whomever the product was delivered to. These correspondences further indicate that the second vessel contains an additional shipment of components and has just arrived in the Mediterranean port. I have transportation options arranged and am prepared to immediately redeploy forces to intercept this threat if necessary. Signed, Lieutenant Colonel C.

  12. //SECRET//JSOC//MARSOC From: [email protected] <Thomas Godfrey> To: [email protected] <Clark Williams> CC: [email protected] <Mark Stanton> Subject: Notice of Immediate Deployment Per orders from POTUS all Commands and Attachments are hereby notified that Task Force Cobra and all supporting detachments are to prepare for immediate deployment to the Ikan Archipelago in response to recent actions in the Malacca Strait. All commands are to ensure OPSEC throughout rank and file. Deployment for all commands is expected no later than March 11th and Task Force Cobra shall begin operations no later than March 12th. Direct presence of command is required. Briefing to follow. Two days ago the American crew of the MV Europa Flame was taken hostage while transiting the Malacca Strait approximately 525 nautical miles northwest of Singapore. This marks the 67th ship to be attacked in this strait over the last 365 days and the third ship with American crew. Today the hostages were rescued, and the ship was recovered by DEVGRU. Recovered intelligence has tied several of the most recent attacks to the Ikan Archipelago off the coast of Indonesia. The uptick in activity, including the targeting of US Citizens, is of growing concern to the Pentagon. In response, Task Force Cobra is tasked with seeking out and destroying any and all organizations hostile to US interests within the Ikan Archipleago. Permission has been secured from the Indonesian government for US forces to operate on their soil. That said, discretion is always expected. Attached is an orientation image. An intelligence estimate will be provided once compiled. God speed. Signed, General Thomas A. Godfrey III Commanding United States Special Operations Command ATTACHMENTS TFCOrientation.jpg
  13. Cargo Ship Hostages Rescued by US Navy SEALs The Grand Central Times - Dateline March 9th 2020 Image of the hostage rescue released by the Pentagon Families of the MV Europa Flame's crew, who had been held hostage for over 48 hours aboard the vessel since their abduction on Saturday, can finally breathe a sigh of relief. The Pentagon announced early this morning that a hostage rescue operation was successfully conducted by US Navy SEALs, and that all six hostages were recovered with only minor injuries. According to reports, the crew was accosted by a series of fast-moving boats late Saturday afternoon. The boats contained men with automatic weaponry who quickly boarded the vessel and took the crew hostage. It comes as no shock that an absurdly high ransom was subsequently demanded from the parent company of the Europa Flame and what can sometimes become a long standoff began. However, the fast and decisive action of the US Military has put a quick end to what would surely have been a terrifying experience for the crew. There are even rumors that the raid itself was conducted by the infamous Seal Team 6, who were made famous by the operation they conducted to kill Osama Bin-Laden in 2011. Unfortunately however, we could not find any source that could verify this claim. The successful rescue of the MV Europa Flame's crew comes as a great relief, not only to the families of the sailors, but to international experts on piracy in the South China Sea as well. Experts have cautioned on numerous occasions that piracy in the region has been steadily on the rise in recent years. This is especially concerning as the area that has seen the most uptick in activity includes key shipping lanes in and around Singapore, which has about 40% of global trade pass through every year. The raid reasserts the US' commitment to never negotiate with terrorists, in any region but as a reminder for this one, and experts hope it may serve as a deterrent to future pirates in the region. While US' projection of military power abroad has been a point of concern for many, in this instance at least, there is very little that can be argued against if their actions serve to secure such a vast portion of the global economy. I don't want pirates stealing the things I'm ordering on Amazon and I'm sure no one else does either.

  15. Afghanistan on the Rise? The Grand Central Times - Dateline February 26th 2020 4th ANA Mechanized Division Clearing Charikar with Close Air Support from US AH-6 Little Birds Its been nearly five months since the last major update on Afghanistan. Due to the extremely troubled history of Afghanistan its difficult to be anything other than hesitant about apparent good news or improved stability. But after five months of watching and waiting, Afghanistan, at least for right now, appears to be on the rise. NATO Specialists have continued to focus their efforts on the recruitment and training pipeline for the ANA and now more recently ANP as well. The success of the "New ANA's" 3rd Brigade in July seems to have clearly indicated to the Pentagon the direction forward for the region. The US lead effort to screen recruits for substance abuse and to ensure effective training have only grown more effective in recent months. Sources indicate that there has been an apparent drop in the "recruitable population" due to the countries general problems with substance abuse, but the recruits that are passing through the process are becoming part of very effective combat units. Large offensives spearheaded by these new forces in central and eastern Afghanistan through December and January have been wildly successful. Taliban forces north of the A77 roadway, in territory they had fiercely pushed the ANA out of in June, have suffered heavy losses and been pushed back by the New ANA. The Afghan government is making progress, but still working to recover from the blow struck by a chemical weapon attack in Kabul on voting day a year and a half ago. Elections last year were suspended due to the heavy fighting and severe losses by the ANA, but while there has been no official announcement yet, its likely that voting will resume this year in September in an attempt to restore some stability and legitimacy to the Afghan government. In the meantime coalition forces will likely spend much of their time and energy focused on their success with the New ANA; Taking territory and restoring security in advance of the democratic elections. US Rangers Fighting in Northern Afghanistan in support of the Northern Alliance The Northern Alliance has continued their war against the Taliban in the north taking large swaths of ground from the Taliban in late August and early September. Conventional US forces have deployed to the region and are assisting Northern Alliance forces in their combat offensives though there still has been no official statement from the Pentagon regarding their long term relationship with the Northern Alliance. Notably the NA have established themselves as an independent state from Afghanistan in the North, though no one has publicly acknowledged them as a separate country. The US support of their military offensives has proven to be effective against the Taliban but means the Pentagon will have to make some interesting decisions regarding the governance of the region. The bad track record of the Afghan government and ANA, despite their recent success, have caused many to look at the Northern Alliance as the way forward for the country. Others think the Northern Alliance needs to be consolidated into the official Afghan state, though such an action would likely not be done voluntarily by the Northern Alliance. Whatever the way forward for Afghanistan's northern provinces, one thing is clear: The Taliban have suffered major blows militarily and are struggling to recover from the combined US-led offensives from the New ANA and Northern Alliance. The reported infighting they experienced last year has certainly played a major role in their inability to pose a significant threat in recent months, but once they get their feet back under them how effective are we likely to see them become? For the first time in recent history the Taliban seems to be solidly on the back foot with the effectiveness of the Afghan military looking up. The biggest concern now, however, seems to be what will happen between Afghanistan and the Northern Alliance. Will this lead to further bloodshed in the country which has become a graveyard of empires? Or will it result in a forced concession of territory with the US attempting to keep the peace? Elections are still unannounced, but the time between now and September is sure to bring more victory for the New ANA, greater stability and the hope that this election might be conducted un-hindered by foreign adversaries, particularly now that Iran is firmly engaged with problems of their own making.
