According to the U.S. Code, the term "covert action" means an activity or activities of the United States Government to infl uence political, economic, or military conditions abroad, where it is intended that the role of the United States Government will not be apparent or acknowledged publicly. Osama bin Laden was killed when U.S. forces stormed his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, in the early hours of May 2, 2011. CIA Director Leon E. Panetta said this was what’s called a “Title 50” operation, which is a covert operation, and it comes directly from the President of the United States. The Abbottabad raid illustrates the post-9/11 security environment convergence of military and intelligence operations. This article focuses on the problem with both using military personnel to conduct covert action and using them without a military chain of command.
