Probable cause of Fatal Blast that killed 14 Marines Aug. 3rd

An official, speaking on background, has said that in all probability, the explosive that flipped an armored amphibious vehicle and killed 14 Marines in Iraq on Aug. 3rd was a triple-stacked anti-tank mine. Pictures show a crater about 8 feet wide and 4 feet deep.
The vehicle struck the mine outside Haditha, near where six Marines in two sniper teams were also killed earlier this week.

it is sad all 14 were from my base as well as 6 others prior. All in all 20 from one base in a span of a few days.
