In 1966, the US Navy established a covert unit, designated the Naval Field Operations Support Group (NFOSG) – also known as Task Force 157. It was founded after a memo by Paul Nitze.[1]

It might have been involved in the 1975 coup against Gough Whitlam, the then Labor Prime Minister of Australia[2]


Information about Task Force 157 was first published in 1977 as Edwin P. Wilson was tried in the Arms for Libya case.
