It's on the BBC

Seems that the mission was practically a suicide one - they had to take a convoy into an area where there was a high chance of attack with non-armoured vehicles that weren't working and very little armed support. Oh and with contaminated fuel.

Quote:
Teresa Hill of Dothan, Alabama, told the Associated Press news agency that her daughter Amber McClenny who serves in the platoon had phoned on Thursday morning to ask her to help.

"This is a real, real big emergency," Ms McClenny said. "I need you to contact someone. I mean, raise pure hell."

"We had broken-down trucks, non-armoured vehicles and ... we were carrying contaminated fuel.

"They are holding us against our will. We are now prisoners," she added.

What the hell is going on out there ? These guys not only have to fight and die in a neocon war but they can't even give them the proper back-up.
