From the WaPo about the battle at Wanat

October 5, 2009

From Greg Jaffe, about the battle at Wanat: Almost a Lost Cause – One of the deadliest attacks of the Afghan war is a symbol of the U.S. military’s missteps…. The moms just want to know about their son. They want to know what kind of a man he was. The dads want to know how their son died. They want someone to explain to them what happened.

Worth a read, indeed.
