Hellfire Missile Erases IED Emplacement Team

Footage from Operation Enduring Freedom, the initial phase of America's war in Afghanistan, shows a base security team observing a two-man Taliban IED emplacement team in action near Patrol Base Huskers in the Marjah region.


Suddenly, a massive explosion erupts at the site, and excited commentary from the Americans confirm the blast was from a Hellfire missile strike. The radio keys up, and one of the perimeter guards reports the explosion as a possible IED detonation, but he is informed by the operations team of the true nature of the blast.
