"all available enablers" ?????

That's a hell of a percentage of KIAs for one unit for one firefight! Was this the FOB up by the border that AQ/local tribal militia tried to wipe off the map after the bombing of the "wedding party"?

Seems that's the way, US Army PR personnel are trained to speak..... :?
So friendly force's enablers are employed to be enemy combatant dis-ablers? :?

Wasn't that the action to re-take Musa Qualeh? US Airborne went in a few days before the ANA to dominate a prominent feature and ended up getting well and truly battered daily by mortars and HMG fire. When they began pushing into the town it got abit tasty for them aswell.
