It looks like praying for them made a difference here. Angel  Outnumbered, Surrounded, Trapped in a valley with enemy dug in with fortified positions in the hills - This was an ambush waiting to happen.

Having the air power they did got those guys out of there in one piece in reality. Apaches and AC-130's can put a assload of firepower down in a very short period of time. The one part of the article where they were talking about dropping ordinance 25 meters from their position is a testement to the Combat Controllers on the ground and the pilots in the sky. Credit goes all around in something that large though. I'm sure it had to be a very incredible experience. I'm thankful all our guys got through it! Excellent
 
We dropped multiple SF units into some very remote areas along the border when i was over there between 03-06. That is without a doubt some of the worst terrain you could ever imagine.  A quick pic of us going into valleys in eastern Afghanistan.

It's amazing what everybody involved was able to do and not have any casualties or even damaged aircraft in a fight like that. Well done!
