Is the video down already?

It's not loading for me.

Still loads


Clearly not a Drone.

Have to agree with a few previous comments. The images were not from drones or any aircraft. The camera was stationary and simply panned from side to side. Probably a CCTV of some sort.

As to the truck wandering into harms way, it is very likely that a CCTV operator passed along incorrect information to ground forces. Also likely that the CCTV operator was anywhere from a few miles to several thousand miles from the camera.

I would be interested in seeing the video between placement of the explosive and detonation. That would tell more of the story.

"Great explanation from Hammerhed26:
For those of you that may not know whats going on in the video... here's a little info. the Surveillance team (not USAF)that spotted this IED emplacer most definitely informed their command of this event. the jump from 03NO to 04NO means they were probably tasked with watching it (for 24hrs)until something happened (and it did). The "41QQR" number is a grid ref to the location of the event (MGRS). whats noteworthy about the video is the team is watching this scene from 5.3km away from the west, so i'm sure the emplacer had no clue he was being watched. this also may have been well outside of the teams Area of Operation or (AO). If it was, at that point, the only thing the team can do is observe and report. this event happened just 1km south of hwy 1 and 5km west of Lakowkhey, Afghanistan Less..

To be honest, it is mostly

To be honest, it is mostly likely is a bureaucratic break down in communications regarding information sharing. Ive seen it plenty of time in the sand box. Or they called out EOD and/or engineers to the location so they could destroy it. but some ass-clown gave a wrong grid.

Doesn't look like drone

Doesn't look like drone footage. It's to stable looking, but I am no expert. Would like to know the truth about it though.

It's not a drone. It looks

It's not a drone. It looks to be from a CCTV tower via a camera system called a "J-lenses."

"Leaders" keep a soldier's anger level

...at its most murderous by sending his buddies into assured ambushes.

A strategy as old as the hills.

Thanks for the ups.

Is everyone too pissed to post?
