I have always found it somewhat difficult finding the proper balance whendiscussing the Tier 1 units we are honoring in Medal of Honor. First andforemost, since we are dealing with individuals who live and work behind theblack fence, we must adhere to certain rules when speaking about these units.Even if we did know the details (which we do not) we would never divulge anyinformation that would be deemed sensitive to members of this community.Therefore the details are never discussed. Full stop. When speaking about“Task Force Blackbird†it is especially difficult.What we do know - from a multitude of publicly available histories, fromvarious reports, and from discussions with our consultants - is that effectivecounterterrorism almost always relies on a close partnership between specialoperations and intelligence. Task Force Blackbird is our approximation of thisrelationship. It is also our way honoring the men and women of the IntelligenceCommunity. As one of our consultants describes it, operational units like Task ForceBlackbird are a "CT symphony" - Tier 1 personnel from the military operatingjointly alongside spies, analysts and techs from the Intelligence Community -where disparate talents and capabilities are brought together to accomplishmore together than they ever could separately.Task Force Blackbird in ourstory is a low visibility, clandestine, special operations team made upof veteran Tier 1 Operators and intelligence personnel with extensivespecialized training in fieldcraft to carry out operations in non-permissiveenvironments.Okay. Still here.I think that should be good enough.Check back next week for the reveal of our next Partner.Greg GoodrichExecutive ProducerMedal of Honor
