USMC Squadron CO Died Fighting During Recent Bastion Attack

'Interviews conducted at Bastion and Leatherneck underscore that the answers are painfully simple. The attackers snuck onto Bastion after cutting a 2-foot-by-5-foot hole in concertina wire on the east side of the base, said a Marine official with knowledge of the attack. A variety of coalition forces patrol the area around the base, but the insurgents apparently evaded detection by them and the personnel in the guard towers, likely British troops.'

******* oops.

Probably the same blind bastards who used stag on at Himal OP in MSQ who frequently missed the Taliban digging IEDs under their noses every night and then shrug their shoulders when we went boom.

******* oops.
'A joint investigation was launched after the attack to determine what happened and how it could have been prevented, Marine officials at Leatherneck said. Gen. James Mattis, the head of U.S. Central Command, ordered them not to publicize what changes have been made to improve security. Marine Corps Times agreed not to disclose any specifics it learned through interviews to maintain operational security.'
