There was clamor after October 3rd that Rangers and Delta were left holding the bag with the grave lack of combat support. As part of their five point contingency plan, Task Force Ranger requested armor, AC-130, and artillery, in the event things went bad, and were denied for the feared perception that the Clinton Administration would look like the USA was "beating up the little guy." So the Administration's answer was an unprepared 10th Mountain Division. The result was several of our finest warriors killed, left out to bleed out in a defensive position.
This movie attempts to implicitly claim some heroism for their act of trying in desperation to support the pinned down operators by describing how they tried to do their job. Never mentioned was the fact that it took several days for them to push back drug crazed riflemen and burning tires, pleading with a foreign army for their help and armor, and the fact that many of the operators literally had to jog back to base on foot getting no support at all!
This movie represents the excuse as to why 10th Mountain was grossly ill prepared and to justify why they deserve some form of similar credit that was given to the operators. They don't. I don't blame the soldiers, but the leadership should not only be ashamed that they failed to provide timely combat support, but also that they did not have the intestinal fortitude to ensure they were ready to do their mission, no matter how unlikely. There is a reason there are no operators interviewed in this movie; it's because they would have blasted the leaders in 10th Mountain for the blood that is on their hands.
