"Since 9/11, the small U.S. contingent here has given the Philippine military the tools and know-how to decimate Abu Sayyaf on its own and have created what some military experts say is a model for how to stop Islamic insurgencies before they require an invasion force to defeat. 'Nobody understands it better than the soldiers that have experience in the Philippines,' said Army Brig. Gen. Edward Reeder, commander of the Army's Special Operations Command at Fort Bragg, N.C. 'They understand counterinsurgency.'" (03/29/11)
