Three Looks at Afghanistan
Just some links today.
The first two links describe the same ambush on a patrol in Afghanistan's Korangal Valley, but from different perspectives.
The Taliban attacked by detonating a bomb after part of the patrol had passed the position of the bomb, thus dividing the patrol in half. The first link is to a film of the patrol made by a video team that was in the rear.
The second link is to photos made by a photographer (Tyler Hicks) who was in the forward part of the patrol.
Last year Tyler Hicks also took these pictures of Kabul.
