Video of the Ambush on the Special Forces Team in Niger is in the wild...We're not posting. Here's why.

The video showing the go cam footage of one of the individuals that was actually there has leaked into the wild.  Let me be clear.  SOMEHOW the video of one of the Special Forces personnel that was involved in the fighting when they were ambushed in Niger is now out.

We're not gonna post it here.

The reason.

Because we won't aid the enemy.

Doing lessons learned after fights is always a good thing.  Doing lessons learned after a fight gone wrong is beyond necessary it's essential.

But there are venues in which you do it.

This blog isn't one of them.

The problem here is that there are so many with so much experience and knowledge (the variety of expertise across so many fields amazes me...I'm talking about real deal, not the fuckers that pull shit out of their ass!) that we would be giving a how to course to people that our boys will be going up against.

God knows SOCOM has done enough of that with their crazy ass training missions to every Tom, Dick and Harry on the planet, that we don't need to add to it.

The video is tragic.

Our Special Forces fought bravely.

But on this day the enemy either got lucky or it was one of those day where Murphy shows up and kicks you in the ass.

The boys at Bragg can do the after action analysis.  We won't.
