A video from Operation Enduring Freedom shows US soldiers defending an absolutely horribly placed outpost from various Taliban attacks.
This stupidly-selected fighting position wasn't unique to this location. All across mountainous eastern Afghanistan, combat outpost (COP) positions were chosen for their ease of resupply by ground vehicles rather than their potential survivability. Their locations selected by a high-ranking officer looking at a map with his feet up on a desk in an air-conditioned office on a far away major airbase who may as well have been back stateside for how relevant he was to the fight.
