Hospital attack fueled by units new to Kunduz

Forums:

Here is an interesting article from the New York Times, arguing that the US bombing of a Doctors Without Borders hospital may have results from lack of group familiarity: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/10/21/us/politics/hospital-attack-fueled-by-.... The American Special Operations Forces hadn't worked in the areas before and hadn't worked with the Afghan commandos who requested the strike.  "[T]he lack of familiarity of American and Afghan forces with the area and their lack of experience in working together may have directly contributed to the series of mistaken decisions that led to the attack."
