COMBAT FOOTAGE! – Aerial Attack on Terrorist Vehicle!

The engagement occured in August 2007, northwest of Balad, Iraq. After the completion of an unrelated air support mission of a “cordon and search”, our team of two AH-64Ds were headed back to our homebase, FOB Speicher. We noticed that there were large fires ahead in the distance along our flightpath, and decided to investigate. We came across approximately 15 armed individuals, leaving an area in which they had set houses and cars on fire. After confirming through the US ground commander responsible for that particular area that these were not US troops, Iraqi Army, Iraqi Police, or friendly local militias, we were authorized to engage after following them to their own encampment. The weapon in the back of the truck destroyed by the Helllfire missile was believed to be a Soviet made DShK 12.7mm used in the strike on the town. The reason that the town was attacked by these men, is that it was a Sunni rejectionist community. That is, they rejected Al-Qaeda, even though they also are Sunni Muslims. Al-Qaeda was trying to force the town into compliance through fear. I just regret that we didn’t stumble upon them before the damage was already done.

  1. hmm why again there so cAlled war.??? 911 no non of the fake terrorist lived there…weapons of mass destruction muster gas thAt regon sold to irack. naw did not find that ither ..

    U.S invaded because of oil that make more sense

  2. Apparently the insurgents do not watch You Tube videos and learn how vulnerable they are out in open country. The height of stupidity! Of course, for the U.S., despite having this capability, the insurgents get away with far too much buildup despite having most of their operations occurring right out in the open.

  3. The plot of America in Iraq after the expulsion of the Islamic state has come to you, you are the ones who are funding, and we are calling for dues when you drop the ammunition from the Black Hawk and the Shinok. Look at YouTube. You who financed the call are calling yourselves free and you belong to Zionist secret, aiming at ruin and destruction In America and the same thing in Israel, Jesus, the son of Mary, crucified Jesus in Jerusalem in 2017. Do you learn in the Holy Quran Who liberates Jerusalem? Iraq is a country of prophets and messengers mentioned in the book of God Almighty do not think of the earthquakes that occur in Europe and the floods Tsunami This is all the wrath of God and prophets and messengers who come to advise you to read the Koran or the Bible, read the correct books and thank I do not oppose the West we are all human beings and us in the Koran What is the meaning of the verse (O ye disbelievers?) What do you worship, and you do not worship what I worship, nor do I worship what you have worshiped? My religion is my religion.
