    It certainly doesn't hurt that the 12th Combat Aviation Brigade is stationed in Germany.

    I think it got play in very few papers. Even Der Speigel did not report it. It does help that they are based in Germany.

    Why is the word "heroes" in quotations? Are they implying that they're not? I just find that curious....almost like the author uses the word with disdain or a bit of cynicism. Maybe I'm just reading into it too much...

    Maybe author was quoting one of his sources who called the Americans "heroes". I guess he takes the journalistic rules regarding objectivity and editorializing seriously.
