This has to stop.

(U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Robert Cloys)
This is ridiculous. Why are the photographs on the ground with the boots elevated over them? This is the absolute vilest disrespect for the dead imaginable by arabs. WTF were they thinking?  Do I want to be part of a military that has this sort of frame available (in expandable form no less) so that the "honored dead" can have somebody else's boots and rifles given pride of place in the backdrop of my death? I don't think so.

In time it will come out why a bunch of Air Force Reservists were "patrolling" in Afghanistan. I'm a little dubious about the nature of any patrol led by a Major and heavily infiltrated by the Office of Special Investigations. It reeks of a People's Commissar and her minions who suffered unexpected reverses while carrying out counterrevolutionary activities of a special and covert nature.

It's the Air Farce. No disrespect to the casualties.

I was thinking exactly the same thing about the nature of the "patrol" Curtis. "Something is rotten in Denmark" most CERTAINLY applies..

It's funny. In the place that I read about this there are some serious answers to the question, what were the OSI major and OSI doing and one person claims that they have been 'patrolling' in that manner for years. Does it sound like Curtis LeMay ordering the B52s to attack worthless targets in Vietnam at the same altitude every single time?

"Routine" shambling around the outer perimeter is a recipe for predictably getting killed in an ambush. You'd think military leaders would understand that and put a stop to it.
