The battle of Wanat, Afghanistan, has been receiving some critical attention lately. The Pentagon’s Inspector General has opened an investigation into whether troops had proper supplies, equipment and aerial surveillance.

Today, the Seattle Times wades into the issue with a well-researched, well-written report. (The Times presumably gave it a second look because one of the casualties that day was Cpl. Jason Bogar of Seattle.)
