Patrick Cashman observes a reconnaissance robot's camera feed on Markbot operator Cpl. Garrett Andrews' laptop Sept. 23, 2009. The Marines based at Forward Operating Delaram near here were investigating tunnels in the district's karez system - a series of wells hundreds of years old - that are suspected to have been used by insurgents as caches for IED making materials.
