Having severed in the Air Force during Desert Storm and Operation Desert Shield, I can tell you what the capablity of a AC-130 can do. I worked on her and flew in her and worked her guns. That girl can take out with precision a single building with almost no damage to the house next door to it. Three of these Beautiful Aircrafts would have been more than able to give them enough time to escape or be rescued. This is purely the fault of the Obam Admin. There is no GWB to blame and all the facts are pointing the the fact that he (Obama) has the blood of these men on them.
