Special Forces Who Avenged 9-11

From an article by Ms. Alex Quade, titled "Special Forces Who Avenged 9-11 (Alex Quade's "Horse Soldiers" Short)" posted on the Small Arms Journal.

These are the Green Berets who avenged the 9/11 attacks. War Reporter Alex Quade spent 5-years tracking the Operators down and persuading them to go on camera and share their photos and stories. Three ODAs ("A-Teams') of 34-men on horseback -- including Special Forces, Combat Controllers and CIA Operatives -- worked with the Northern Alliance after 9/11 to overthrow the Taliban and Al Qaeda, before America even knew that we were at war in Afghanistan. Alex Quade did stories for CNN, the Washington Times and a full film narrated by Actor Gary Sinise. Quade is releasing this SHORT version from her Edward R.Murrow Award-winning documentary, for the 15th anniversary of 9/11, and the rededication of the statue at Ground Zero.
