2018 Controversy

SOFREP was at the center of controversy in 2018 when they published an ISIS propaganda video on Youtube, replacing the ISIS watermark with their own, and spurring backlash from some in the special operations community.[4] SOFREP defended the decision by making clear that this was to show what war looks like.[5]
