Wasn't the Afghan campaign of 2001-02 the ultimate unconventional warfare battle?

A few teams from 5th SF Group inserted into Afghanistan with CIA paras and USAF Combat Controllers. They all hooked up with the Northern Alliance and other anti-Taliban tribes. They carried little weaponry, aside from radios, laser designators and some walking-around cash. And ran into Kabul and Kandahar in weeks.

In Iraq, some SF teams have been tied to Iraqi Army commando teams and Iraqi police SWAT type units, and Peshmerga commando types.
