A video has emerged that appears to show members of the Taliban building, then detonating an improvised explosive device (IED) on an American vehicle.
The video was produced by As-Sahab Media and shows various stages of the men actually constructing the device they’re about to blow up an armored vehicle with. They’re seen adding ball bearings, bolts, and anything else they can find as shrapnel with the bomb, then putting a metal backing on it to direct the blast towards the target.
Near the end of the video American vehicles can be seen driving down what appears to be a remote road. After the first vehicle passes, the second is struck with the powerful explosives that were planted in the street.
There’s no word on whether or not anybody was killed, however the force of the explosion seemed great enough to cause serious harm to the vehicle’s occupants.
To think, these are the same people that our “fearless” leader Obama negotiated with.
