Removed un-sourced text[edit]

I have removed the following un-sourced text that at diff 9076794, 23:04, 28 November 2006; has been 'dumped' in the References section. This has happened on two other occasions with similar info, but the text appears to have been integrated into the page.

This seems to be true information if this 'Militarytimes.com source [1] is reliable, also a copyvio as it is appears to be a word-for-word copy of that source! --220 of Borg 07:26, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

Lead section should be body article[edit]

The whole article has six paragraphs and lists of involved military personnel. --George Ho (talk) 05:06, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
