So it turns out that "the biggest air strike since 'Shock and Awe'" consists of using about 50 helicopters to ferry ground troops in. The 'copters themselves haven't fired a shot and the guys on the ground haven't been doing much either.

So who decided to bill this thing as "the biggest air strike since 'Shock and Awe'"? And why? Is the entire world supposed to stand in awe of the U.S. Air Force's ability to provide air taxi service?
