quotes from article:
The soldiers from B Troop weren't supposed to still be at Keating when the attack occurred on Oct. 3, 2009. The base's closing was scheduled months earlier as part of McChrystal's strategy to shutter isolated bases and have U.S. forces focus on more populated areas to protect civilians.
Keating's closure was delayed after equipment and supplies needed to move the troops and their equipment were diverted to support operations in another area.
Keating was closed three days after the attack.
