  2. I wonder if he take the command to task for not supplying them with the necessary number of grunts to seal off the area and relying on Afghanis instead.
  3. Or in fact explore the widely held belief in Afghanistan by locals and involved foriegners at the time that it was a deliberate policy, as by that stage a ‘quick finish’ to the OBL issue was no longer in the interests of a very large number of people
  4. Don't these guys sign a confidentiality agreement not to publish books about their SF service?
