Wasdin in his memoirs. Wasdin also indicated that while the character in the movie ridiculed his captors, in reality, Atto seemed concerned that Wasdin and his men had been sent to kill rather than apprehend him. First of all when I was caught on 21 September, I was only travelling with one Fiat , not three vehicles as it shows in the film[…] And when the helicopter attacked, people were hurt, people were killed[ And my colleague Ahmed Ali was injured on both legs[…] I think it was not right, the way they portrayed both the individual and the action.
It was not right. Navy SEAL Wasdin similarly remarked that while olive green military rigger's tape was used to mark the roof of the car in question in the movie, his team in actuality managed to track down Atto's whereabouts using a much more sophisticated technique involving the implantation of a homing device.
This was hidden in a cane presented to Atto as a gift from a contact who routinely met with him, which eventually led the team directly to the faction leader. Malaysian military officials whose own troops were involved in the fighting have likewise raised complaints regarding the film's accuracy. Retired Brigadier-General Abdul Latif Ahmad, who at the time commanded Malaysian forces in Mogadishu, told the AFP news agency that Malaysian moviegoers would be under the erroneous impression that the real battle was fought by the Americans alone, with Malaysian troops relegated to serving as "mere bus drivers to ferry them out".
General Pervez Musharraf , who later became President of Pakistan after a coup, similarly accused the filmmakers of not crediting the work done by the Pakistani soldiers. The outstanding performance of the Pakistani troops under adverse conditions is very well known at the UN.

In the book, it ends with soldiers reaching a rendezvous point on National Street in the opposite direction from the stadium :. He ran until he collapsed, with joy" .
We didn't run out. We walked expediently in a tactical formation for about a mile to get to an awaiting convoy.
On the whole, the film version where the convoy leaves the soldiers running through the city alone does not correspond to the real event:. The Mog mile was to a rally point where the Pakistani tanks and the vehicles from 10th Mountain were, waiting to take the men of TFR out to the Pakistani stadium.
That's exactly what happened. That, in all its non-dramatic form, is the so-called "Mogadishu mile" The film begins with the quote, "Only the dead have seen the end of war," misattributed to Plato.
