“On August 6 [2011], the Taliban exacted a kind of revenge [for the death of Osama bin Laden] when they shot down a Chinook transport helicopter, killing forty people aboard, including thirty-two U.S. military personnel. It was the largest death toll of Americans in a single day in the war and included seventeen SEALS–some of whom belonged to the SEAL team that had taken down Bin Laden.”
