    that there were also secondary anti-personnel devices planted for the purpose of wounding or killing follow up patrol or investigative team members.  One of these devices was successfull unfortunately.

    The diarist makes a good point:  planting a 500 pound bomb and secondary devices on a busy road that sports multiple US checkpoints should be hard to do.   It seems likely that to be successful the bad guys have to know exactly what US forces are doing and also have the support of the locals (of whom some were probably the perpetrators).
