At 6:00 a.m. at the morning of October 3, 2009, battle Outpost Keating was once viciously attacked by Taliban insurgents. The five3 u.s.a. troops, having been stationed at the backside of 3 steep mountains, were critically outmanned by just about four hundred Taliban warring parties. despite the fact that the americans in the end prevailed, their casualties made it one of the most strugglecff0478#39;s deadliest battles for u.s.a. pressures. And after greater than 3 years in that dangerous and inclined valley an insignificant 14 miles from the Pakistan border, the united states abandoned and bombed the camp. A Pentagon investigation later concluded that there was once no explanation why for Outpost Keating to have been there in the first place.
