Description

CBS News investigates a military training accident in the Kuwaiti desert in March 2001. Six American troops were killed and eleven injured, when an American Navy jet dropped three 500-pound bombs on a desert observation post. Nobody has been held responsible for the mistake, the segment reports. The main finding is that the so-called "close air support" is one of the most dangerous jobs in the military," in which "any mistake can have deadly consequences for the soldiers calling in air strikes on the enemy."
