Promotion delayed for Army colonel involved in Niger ambush | Army Times

The Tongo Tongo ambush in Niger took place on October 4th, 2017 and resulted in four U.S. soldiers being killed. An investigation into the events has led many to believe that all the blame was pushed onto the lower ranking officers, when it was really Col. Bradley Moses who approved the mission. Capt. Michael Perozeni was originally blamed for what happened until it was later revealed that he asked to end the mission because he believed it went against his better judgement. Numerous lawmakers and family members of the fallen soldiers have criticized the handling of the events and believe Moses was never punished enough for his lack of judgement. Investigators also concluded that Maj. Alan Van Saun has failed to ā€œprepare his soldiers for the deployment.ā€
