|Can anyone shed any more light on what the hell went wrong here??
This happend near Kabul?!?
How did this ambush come about? Are any rumours about subsequent friendly fire from allied jets true?
IS there a link to the fact that over all command of the area had just been handed over to France.
Was there a communications blunder between the US and France, did the French have less Intel than previously under the US, e.g. UAV and Air cover etc?
"Ironically the ill-fated Isaf reconnaissance mission in the rocky Sarobi district, 50km (31 miles) east of Kabul, which saw 10 French soldiers killed and 21 others wounded was not led by the US. The command of the area had just been handed over - to France. "
