American airstrike

This video, found on YouTube, apparently shows an American airstrike on an enemy position. Voices in the background indicate that American troops have filmed the attack and are heard celebrating a direct hit. Such videos can be used by America's enemies to paint U.S. troops as bloodthirsty, say experts.
