In a Nov. 9 story about U.S. Marines trying an aggressive new strategy to tame a violent Afghan valley, The Associated Press, relying on information provided by the Marines on the ground, misidentified the aircraft that launched a Hellfire missile. The Marines now say it was a Marine Corps KC-130J equipped with a "Harvest HAWK" ISR/Weapon Mission Kit, not an AC-130 gunship.
