The November 26 attack on a pair of Pakistani military bases remains a controversial issue in Pakistan, and Pakistani officials say that NATO was apologizing for the attack even as it was ongoing. The report says that NATO promised to withdraw but failed to do so for hours. US officials insist the attacks were a mistake, while Pakistan insists it was not possible for such a mistake to happen.

I heard this week that Ms. Michele Flournoy, is stepping down from her pentagon position…I wonder if having to explain some of these "mistakes" just got old.
They made always mistakes and what about the death, will they be alive again?
Of course they knew they were attacking Pakistani positions. Who else would it be? Are we supposed to believe that the Taliban or Al Qaueda are manning these bunkers? We have maps to all of the Pakistani positions on the border.
I would bet you dollars to donuts that the SF troops in the area were there to scout out the positions and "paint" them so they could be struck accurately.
This was not a mistake it was planned and carried out to somebodies order.
the mistake was miscalculating the response
the mistake was miscalculating Pakistabn's response
hey admin, what's your problem?
As we mentioned on the blog a couple days ago there's something crazy going on with the comment system. I've been going in and "undeleting" stuff that's inexplicably getting auto deleted every chance I get but so far we haven't tracked down what's causing it in the first place.
Sorry about the hassles with it.

Check your server logs – I would suspect it’s not a glitch…
