Video from Baghdad in 2007 shows an insurgent sniper engaging coalition forces, though unaware that he is being observed by members of the 1st Air Cavalry Brigade.
After firing upon Western troops, he runs back to his vehicle in an attempt to hide in the busy city traffic. As he begins to exfiltrate the area, he is engaged by a Hellfire missile, and his car is sent flying off the road aflame. Let’s hope he wasn’t able to connect with the shots he took from the overpass.
