Taliban fighters attempt to attack and record a night attack against an American position. Apparently they don’t know how night vision works.
The Taliban conduct an attack against an American position. They initiate with RPGs and small arms fire, while their camera man attempts to record the action for propaganda purposes. It’s dark outside, so in order to get good angles on the attack, he turns on his camera’s IR light. He wouldn’t want to miss any of the heroic actions of his Mujaheddin brothers.
As soon as the Taliban start firing on the American positions, they are doomed. Not only do their muzzle flashes give away their position, but this camera guys IR light is a gigantic bulls-eye running around in the dark.
