Delta Force during the hunt for Laden in the mountains of Tora Bora.
Most Professional Soldiers would tell you that the best camouflage in the world is to dress in native garb (Mufti) and behave like the locals, and very often you'll find “Special Forces” guys (armed with their excellent language skills and cultural sensitivities) doing just that, even when they are visiting friendly host nations.When“going native”proves impossible SF Guys might then buy European or Other foreign-made clothes so they can pose as anything but American.Given the risk for military personnel of overseas exposure these days, this makes a lot of sense. As always, flexibility is the key to their actions.
