Unconventional warfare SF etc is only troubled because conventional commanders misuse their assets. Even when "Operators" are made Commanders, McC in Astan they are operators in name only. What did McC have? A minute in an ODA after he was Long Tabbed and the rest at B&C level, then some stints at the the Ranger Regt.
Another member here has opined and I agree , we need a Sgt from 22 to command in Astan. Someone who actually understands the meaning of unconventional warfare, not a ticket puncher.
