Here it is, the greatest special forces footage to have come out of Operation Enduring Freedom.

This video is an absolute classic and came off a recovered hard drive from my 2005-06 deployment. Based on the uniforms and scenes from the famous raid on Samara’s Golden Mosque during Operation Baton Rouge, the actual content of the video is likely from 2004 and highlights who I believe is 1st Battalion, 5th Special Forces Group.

The video itself is edited into hypnotizing perfection with seemingly endless flash bangs, door kicks, and gate rams, as Green Berets and their host nation counterparts conduct near-constant high-intensity raids to capture or kill high value targets.
