"Combat Entry"? Robert Baer Interview...

Post by Ryan » Sat Jul 02, 2016 4:18 am


"They changed tactics for instance in Iraq... a dynamic entry... and then they got ambushed one time and then they did combat entry."

Is this switching from immediate to limited?

First, very, VERY interesting interview. Thanks for posting that, Ry. Second, I think when he's using the phrase "combat" entry versus dynamic entry, he's being very honest. He said that prior to being ambushed, our teams were using the dynamic entry with the HR mindset, as opposed to the "combat" entry, where you shoot anyone moving in the house after entry is made. Two very different goals.
If you have `cleared' all the rooms and met no resistance, you and your entry team have probably kicked in the door of the wrong house.
