Regarding the Bat-21 episode of the Vietnam War

How was the EB-66 shot down if it should have been able to identify and jam missile frequencies? Did the NVA use a new, hitherto unknown, system?
I read two EB-66s were in that sortie.

Is there an assessment report on the incident?

See wiki:
LTC Iceal E Hambleton
Rescue of Bat 21

The SAMs that downed the EB-66 came from an unexpected direction.

See the book:
The Rescue of Bat 21

There is a detailed assessment that "may" fall into the 'more than I wanted to know' category. It is long.
