What bothers me a bit about this article is that they released the actual names of those involved on the Intel side. Not a good idea in a guerilla-war. They are now potential targets for the other side.
Heck the Israelis don't even ackowledge the names of their combat pilots because of the fear of retribution.
And a final thought: regardless of their experience or preparation, this 1LT & CPL are now the resident experts. They'll be teaching this stuff when they get back to the States.

Release of names is a concern, but the media can't give anyone 15 minutes of fame with out their names. You know how important the 15 mins is.
