JB1 and NavalSpec have opposite figures. So which way did this go?
Either way it sucks though.

Well, if it was a US chopper (
), it would stand to reason that the 4 would be the flight crew...It wouldn't take 12 to pilot a chopper. Logical deduction concerning the contradicting reports...
---------------------------------
Shortly after posting the above, I ran across a BBC news article about the chopper crash: news.bbc.co.uk...

It mentions 8 British Marine Commandos & 4 American troops (They havn't mentioned anything specific about the Americans...Go figure
).
They've also mentioned that these are the first officially confirmed deaths on our side since the war started.
