"According to US joint [multiservice] doctrine, an air assault is one in which assault forces, using the mobility of rotary wing assets and total integration of available firepower, manoeuvre under the control of a ground or air manoeuvre commander to engage enemy forces or seize key terrain."LAME! LAME! LAME!
In this instance, key terrain may have been seized but no enemy forces were apparently engaged.
But the massive press coverage was not just the result of a semantic misunderstanding.
The operation came at a time when support at home for President Bush and his campaign in Iraq was running very low, and when the international media were preparing to focus on the third anniversary of the war, just three days later.
