Was the mission doomed from the start? Were Taliban fighters tipped off? Were fallen servicemembers treated with dignity and respect?
A U.S. military investigation has found that the August helicopter crash that killed 30 Americans in Afghanistan was the result of a Taliban attack, not poor planning or faulty equipment.
Some of the affected family members of the victims of the Aug. 6, 2011, Chinook crash have said they haven't received an adequate explanation of what happened.
An airstrike has killed the insurgents responsible for shooting down a U.S. helicopter in Afghanistan and causing the largest single-day loss of American life in the 10-year-old war, the top commander there said.
Negative spin of the Taliban’s shooting down of a helicopter that killed dozens of elite troops is unlikely to affect special operations missions.
