The Facts from this Documentary added to the Facts from War Reporter Alex Quade's Documentary "Horse Soldiers of 9/11" plus the facts from Doug Stanton's "Horse Soldiers: The Extraordinary Story of a Band of US Soldiers Who Rode to Victory in Afghanistan" completes the Entire Story and Doug Stanton's description (a you tube video "Doug Stanton discusses "Horse Soldiers"") of how U.S. Army Special Forces are like "Jedi Knights, as "They don't look like your average everyday regular Army Soldier,often speak several languages, they often know so much about the Economy, Social Mores, and Cultural Habits of where it is they are going. They are really part Diplomat, Full Time Soldier, part Cultural Anthropologist, and trained to really blend into a Community and make things happen from it's middle and if they have to they are able to apply real Force to that situation, but they get a real kick out of actually trying to make things happen almost like a Jedi Knight without really having to put a finger to a trigger."

Information they (U.S. Army Special Forces Team Members) did not know (reason for the mistakes in the Documentary) Does not include the U.S. Army Special Forces attached to CIA's Special Activities Directorate ("Division" SAD) and CIA's Special Operations Group (SOG) that went into Afghanistan days after the 9/11 2001 Attacks with the President Bush September 2001 Mission of CIA Operation Neptune Spear of Locating and Capturing Osama Bin Laden, and Eliminate those Responsible for the 9/11 2001 Attacks.

There is about another page of information they (U.S. Army Special Forces Team Members did not know at that time). As U.S. Army Special Forces (From the other Groups like the U.S. Army 10th Special Forces Group and the U.S. Army's 10th Mountain Division entered Northern Iraq, October 2001 (not the 2002 stated in the Documentary).
