    Lots, but it would take another thread to explain it all to you... I know one of the pilots from that debacle. That was ALL Carter.

    Hint - Sea Stallion helicopter is not very well suited for desert duty...

    So Carter was there in person and he personally picked the equipment for the raid?

    Here's the bottom line on all this give and take. The single bullet theory is physically impossible, ergo there was more than one shooter = conspiracy. It's as simple as that, and all the Posners and Bugliosis and O'Reillys can't change physics.

    This is off topic and a waste of time.

    Actually, that's EXACTLY what he did. The army had the proper equipment, in theater, but ex-Navy officer Carter insisted that the Navy do the job.

    that's not what the experts who reviewed it said. the JTF devised the plan, Joint Chiefs approved it, then Carter approved it. Nowhere in the official review, led by top retired military personnel, did it say the military wanted to do one thing and Carter made it do something else.

    Not sure on the UN guys numbers as the Iraqi war is estimated to have produced 2.2 million refugees, many of whom are still displaced, as well as those displaced inside Iraq from war exacerbated by ethnic cleansing.
