Let me clean this post up.
First I hope those guys make it out ok. Second, we have to do a serious re-evaluation of these missions. If I were to make an uneducated guess it would be that the enemy was tipped off.
Last. We've got to do better. The Pentagon is working on the President's priority of safe gun technology instead of focusing on warfighting. Additionally they've bought into the Think Tank bullshit that forward presence is more important than fighting wars. Its time to put away zealotry, and focus on the defense of a nation.
