Hours before dawn on June night, two thousand fourteen giant should know helicopters like deems dropped captain Anderson, and his ninety five man task of US, and Afghan soldiers into the Gaza valley to chase away, the Taliban fighters temperatures soared over one hundred degrees as the US troops shadow, their Afghan allies from rocky ridges at the same time radio intercepts showed. The Taliban were also shadowing them at dusk. The soldiers climbed down to take up positions near three helicopter landing zones. So the flag here, the red flag, what does that represent that represents where we ended up at the end of the day, getting ready for pick up from the helicopters attached to Anderson's green beret team was an air force controller whose identity is classified. He was assigned to the mission just. Seventy two hours earlier and his job was critical to guide air force planes on bombing strafing.

"The evening of June two thousand fourteen after a desperate firefight with the Taliban to army green berets and three regular army soldiers were dead, but they were killed by an air force bomber. That was supposed to be coming to their aid. The Pentagon appointed then Air Force Major general Geoffrey horizon to investigate the friendly fire accident after an eight-week probe. The general issued a report that concluded the incident was avoidable and he spread the blame around to the air force controller to the bomber crew. And to the army green berets go over some of the findings, it says, quote though this was a challenging set of circumstances. Had the team executed standard tactics techniques, and procedures and communicated effectively, this incident was avoid. Voidable. What do you think of that statement? I disagree with that statement. But the investigation singled out captain Anderson, who had led his team on more than eighty combat missions in Afghanistan for especially tough criticism. It charged that he lost track of his men, and that his failures quote caused him to miss identify friendly forces as enemy. They said, you didn't know that five of the members had moved up the hillside. And that you should have sort of a major point then the investigation of that's an interesting Anderson told us the soldiers on the hill, where within what he thought was their standard security perimeter, giving you there any responsibility for what happened. I'm the commander of this team. This is my team. I miss my guys tremendously. But at the end of the day, there's nothing that myself or my team sergeant did that day or failed to do that day that caused that incident to happen. There's a thousand different things that can happen during firefight missions. We made the decisions which we thought were best at the time on the ground for the guys that were getting shot report goes on to say that from you. There was a sense of urgency to drop the bombs that was perhaps unnecessary. So, in other words, you're. Making this seem like it was a bigger deal than it actually was. I was there. It was a big deal. The call it a false sense of urgency. They can call it that but they weren't there. Twenty one minutes isn't a turn ity when you're being shot at. I think knowing. The fundamental reasons why this occurred. They looked at the wrong things. Yes. The root cause. The friendly fire incident hasn't been adequately addressed yet. The aircraft carrying out close air support missions that can't detect the common marking mechanism at nighttime. It's dangerous to use the aircraft that is incapable, picking up infrared strobes the families of the fallen soldiers were briefed by a team of five officers led by general Harrigan, one of those gold star parents was Woody student an economics, professor at California's Occidental college, and the father of green beret's, staff Sergeant Scott student student interviewed all, but two of his sons teammates and has methodically and repeatedly reviewed every line of the declassified investigative report in a personal quest to understand how and why his son died or you satisfied with the investigation. How can a pair you satisfied investigation into their son's death when the? The basic cause hasn't been corrected in that is that the b one bomber sniper pot was not capable of seeing with robes that the green berets were wearing. So there's off the bombs in a Skype interview in thousand seventeen from his headquarters in cutter, we asked general Herenton who led the investigation, why the bomber crew didn't know their targeting system could not see infrared strobes on the soldiers helmets. How is it possible that the aircrew didn't know what they're playing was capable or incapable of doing? They should have known quite frankly of that part of the academics that are given to them. So it was there. But the crew didn't remember that the ground crew should have known just as well. That they're I are stroke could not be seen by sniper pod, yet, the general's own report says quote these capabilities were not specifically covered in sniper academics. In other words, air force bomber crews were not taught that they're targeting system. Can't detect infrared stroz general.

He faults the people on the ground the air force control, and the green berets for failing to keep track of each other and. And accurately communicate their positions to the bomber individuals on the ground heavy responsibility. Have a duty. To know where their teammates are. And they're the ones that are communicating that information to the aircrew could that discrepancy have been overcome if the crew had been able to see the infrared strokes without a doubt, people will say that this incident proves that the b one is not suited for that kind of close air support this incident had nothing to do with the platform. This incident had everything to do with the humans involved. With what happened here, I think that when humans are under fire in fear for the lives and to make mistakes, that's different from government. Not understanding the capabilities of the weapons systems at offend to help our troops. Student is convinced the b one targeting system is responsible for his son's death. None of the other mistakes mattered. None of them. When we send our soldiers into battle. It's wrong to have them using weapons system, which isn't capable of doing what it's supposed to be doing. Guess not murder. But it's close. Would he stood him in wanted to speak to us on camera? Because he fears a similar mistake will happen again. I don't believe his dead son's comrades agree. And told us the reports criticism of captain Anderson was unjust. If I got a phone, call today, that said, you have got to go back to ghanistan these were the guys that I would want to be back with. If they had missed a. To the level that report says that they missed up. I would not want to, to do that.

"This animation shows the b one targeting. System could see gunfire coming from sergeants McDonald, and student who were shooting at the Taliban from the hillside above medic branch, but because the plane's crew couldn't see the green beret strobes they mistook their muzzle flashes for the Taliban, and that was just one of cascade of critical errors. According to the investigation of the incident. The report charges that in the heat of battle captain Anderson lost track of the soldiers who had climbed the hill to fight the Taliban, the air force controller with Anderson, whose job, it was to pinpoint enemy targets admitted he made a mistake and sent conflicting positions for US and enemy fighters to the bomber the b one aborted its bomb run on three passes as technical glitches and the mountainous terrain. Garbled radio transmission. How long did that take up taking a total of twenty one minutes, and all of this time you're under fire? The report also revealed that as the bomber circle twelve thousand feet above them instead of targeting the Taliban, the air force controller made a fatal mistake. He gave the b one crew the location of the US soldiers as the target and quote improperly directed the aircraft over a friendly position. No one in the bomber count, the air controllers conflicting positions for US and enemy fighters that should have been a red flag. The air force controller with the green berets radio. The bomber be advised friendly's are the only ones marked by, I r strobes. So anybody else is enemy target six minutes later. He asked any I are strobes in your sensor. At this time.

It would be pretty typical during the course of operation to take fire. We had a long deployment. It was fairly Connecticut a lot of action. Yeah. Enrollments coming home safe. We had a few guys from our sister team that had gotten shot on a previous mission. The ten men eighteen was part of the fifth special forces group from Fort Campbell, Kentucky, the group's commander called them the most disciplined, well trained and affective unit in Afghanistan, the green berets struck out from forward operating base Apache. A dusty outpost in restive Zabul, province, an area dotted with beehives of Taliban fighters hidden in plain sight among the locals. We knew that this area contained Taliban bad guys. So we understood that there was a clear possibility that we'd be getting shot at some point. Captain Anderson says the Taliban stepped up its tax when the US announced most of its troops would leave you after the Afghan election in June. I think that the Taliban was trying to make a statement before we left. What was the mission in the Gaza valley that day our job in conjunction with our Afghan partners were to help the Afghans in going clearing, the Gaza valley, for many Taliban that may be hiding and waiting for the elections to come forth and attacked the polling sites.

"He said two things to us. But the one relative to your question is he said, do you know what the definition of a great deployment is for a one or two, which you know what it means to junior officers, right? He said, oh, one or two has a great deployment if they do precisely what their chief petty officers tell them to do them. And he said, I am very close to those cheap petty officers. And if you don't, I will know it before you do. And the funny thing about it is it stuck forever because forty two ninety two ten years after in search of excellence in nineteen ninety two, the CB's their fiftieth anniversary and I was reasonably high visibility. So I was invited to give it. Speech somewhere, the dinner speech. So it's table three times this long whole bunch of admirals and per your dad. Couple of command chiefs were there. And so you know, I got in there and I said, well, it's always nice to see all this brass was I'm concerned the only damn thing that matters in the navy or the chief petty officers. Some probably some of the admiral's didn't laugh, but one of the chiefs as you can imagine, came up to me afterwards. He said, I would have paid for that one. About so that was it. And the other thing was which you know is also very consistent with what I have subsequently written about is Cap'n Anderson just said, get the job done. He said, I'm not even vaguely interested in hurdles you're here to do the job. He said, you're Queant will suck the weather. The monsoon will last forever. You know, the roads will be mind, but he said, you're here to build stuff, which is, you know, you've got to be damned subtle about that. That did not mean that you risk your troops. The analogy that incidentally is my speakers bureau who represents everybody. Anybody represents Colin Powell, and I was a celebrate Tory party in happened to be ten feet away. When somebody I think it was some author said the general pal. He said, well, what are your leadership secrets? And pal, said, two things. Take care of your troops and focus on today's job. Not the promotion and that was it. You know, as a single sentence which I thought was, you know, again incredibly powerful. But the other thing that's important about captain Anderson was I had to deployment s- I two commanding officers, and I know that there are going to be naval academy graduates, listening and life goes on, and I call them captain day and captain night Anderson's view of life. As I just said was you're here to get stuff built. I'm not interested in reports. Captain voldemort s- view of the world was I would rather have a meticulous report about a job that wasn't finished. I'm exaggerating, but that's the way you know, that's the way it felt. The funny thing. One of the funny things is I was in the second the point I was an operations officer. So I had the right to the talian deployment report and captain voldemort. I can't let Israel name slip out. He has passed away. So it's not a libel law thing. And I remember one time I get somebody said, you know, capping wants to see you. I'm a civil engineering graduate comes in and he said Mr. Peters. And as you also know in the navy Mr. is the junior officer dress that Mr. Peters, do you not know the difference between the word tangible and palpable. God loved me because instead of falling apart with hysterical laughter. I was scared enough of the guy that I stood there and sitting, no, sir, but it's not fair, great.

Our our Pinellas county beaches and captain Anderson is this going to continue to move on northward on the beaches, in western Florida Well I mean it sure looks like it seems, to be the forecast is moving slowly to the, Norse it looks like to, me too if worst case scenario. Was going to be west wind southwest winds pushing. The red tide up the coast and you know we've got although it's light wins this morning they are westerly any any type of west wind south west wind is is just Is just? Not going to be good here I unfortunately I've been praying that we could avoid this but I just don't I, just don't see how it's possible I, think we're gonna get we're going to. Get rolled up.

In the, last two mornings today carefully the last two mornings I was, off the water at about this time, catch it right out there by. XBox and I we haven't seen anything yet everything looks fine we caught a lot of fish last couple of. Days I, never saw any dead, fish bait says no dead fish. Very, time so, at this point we're still we still look clear you know a lot of times if. You're out of that red tide. If you could cut a few throat it's just kind, of a nasty nasty thing makes it costs a, little bit and it's just, kind of a comfortable you can. Almost smell it then obviously when the fish died. You can smell that real easily I I was trying. To pay attention here for the, last week or two on it I haven't. I haven't sensed any of it but you know we're getting reports I had a Got a real good friend of mine Paul bristowe from. The sunshine skyway fishing pier who helps co host with me a lot on Saturday mornings there when he text me yesterday and said, that there. Was some biologists out of the, skyway peer doing, some water testing. At that read Algae bloom is. At the fishing pier Alex at a. Rate where it would start to kill, the fish yet but obviously they expect from everything we're hearing they expect. That to to get to that point here sometimes yeah they're even saying maybe it's killing off dolphins down to the south of us Well I think that's the frustrating part. You, know, those of. Us who make our living out there. Who deal with these environmental groups all. The time to save the manatee people in the, tarp and, people and all these groups that are constantly on those of us who fish I'm shocked that. We're not, hearing from them on this issue know we're we're man manatees are dead down and showed harbor they've found him from the red tide so you would think that that would help us you know in our battle to. Try to get our lawmakers, to pay attention to, everything that's going on you know, obviously the water problems down at lake Okeechobee or no secret before the people. Voted for certain changes to happen about their that their directly just point blank being ignored by our lawmakers. For, obvious reasons because big sugar and then you know this this red tide here Have you talked to marine biologists, they'll tell, you that red tides been around for hundreds of years it's part of our Gulf of Mexico. Estuary and, certain things feed it and you know we have all these neighborhoods like are you south Tampa is a great example because if you if you've ever driven around Southampton heavy rains that water runs one direction and its, floods and then it runs, straight to the bay The problem is a lot, of those old neighborhoods?
