I spoke with a JAG from the US Air Force that was assigned to JSOC until recently. He was uncertain, but he seemed to be worried that I was putting to much emphasis on my interest in thee CAS portion of a Combat Controller's role in current conflicts. He said there is a decent possibility that it may not be as integral a part of their activities in the near future. He mentioned something about the Army getting tired of using Air Force CCTs that were not necessarily polite to some of the Army officers in charge of the units the CCTs were attached to when those officers tried to give them orders regarding CAS that seemed heinous to the Controllers. The JAG mentioned something about "rumors"(his way of hinting that they might be more than rumors) of Army SOF units trying to get more of their own men trained in JTAC roles so they wouldn't need CCTs as much. I was simply wondering if anyone that actually knows what they are talking about could shed some light on the situation. Is this unlikely, or is there some truth to it? The JAG was assigned to JSOC, but he's a JAG(not SOF). If this is a dumb, or already answered, question, I apologize.
