Four Green Berets were killed during an ISIS ambush near Tongo Tongo, Niger in 2017. The team of US and Nigerien partner forces found themselves outnumbered and without backup. The event and subsequent military investigation are the subject of a new documentary produced by ABC, 3212 Un-Redacted. The military’s initial investigation placed blame on the ground operators, but further review of the events suggests they were acting within direct orders given by higher ups. The military’s investigation painted a picture of a team gone rogue, but the documentary suggests the team repeatedly requested to conduct the operation another time when they would be better prepared.
