More dripping from Herschel Smith in two parts.
Raises more good points, but the best point remains: if we lacked *anything* available, that is the first failure, if we know the situation was bad and didn’t simply bug out, that was the second failure.
All other failures are subsidiary, and next to irrelevant.
I made this very point a day or two ago. I mean, we HAVE allies, right? They could have helped, right? A single aircraft would have been sufficient to take out the mortar, and our ex-SEALs would still be alive. One appearance by air support, and the attackers would have called it a night. “Oops, time to go!”
Appears to be a case of questioning which allowed weasel-room.
To get a benchmark for the questioning which is needed, harken back to the Watergate Committee hearings and tighten the screws by an order of magnitude.
It was bad enough in a cover-up of a mere breaking-and-entering.
People will lie their *sses off in this affair.
