sites are being chosen for a five-year program to train and equip the Frontier Corps

 U.S. seeks bigger role assisting Pakistani forces

Michael Vickers, assistant defense secretary for special operations and low-intensity conflict, said sites are being chosen for a five-year program to train and equip the Frontier Corps, a paramilitary unit, to confront al Qaeda and the Taliban in Pakistan’s northwestern tribal region. 

Does Special Forces do FID anymore?  Who is supposed to be conducting this training?  SF?  Dyncorp?  WVARNG? 

24 American and six United Kingdom personnel will teach three courses to Pakistan’s Frontier Corps

The Brits created the Frontier Corps.  They are an organization straight out of a Rudyard Kipling story.  Whoever gets that gig won’t have a job, but an adventure.
