U.S. Special Forces soldiers describe the Northern Alliance commanders' surprise and elation at the effectiveness of U.S. precision airstrikes.

Hamid Karzai and U.S. soldiers recall the "friendly fire" incident on December 5, 2001 that killed three Americans and at least 23 Afghans. The U.S. bomb exploded as a Taliban delegation was on its way to deliver the surrender of Kandahar to Karzai.
