AQI IED Attack on American Armored Vehicle

An insurgent release propaganda video from 2009 shows an improvised explosive device attack against an American patrol. The video follows the insurgent group from the time they make the IED until the time the device is triggered against the American vehicle.


It's unclear which American unit was hit by the IED attack, or how the troops inside of the vehicle faired, however having lived through a similar IED attack in a lighter weight and less protected humvee, I would imagine the troops were shaken, but fine with the worst of the damage being dealt to the turret gunner.


I would be interested to know if any of our viewers might have been involved this attack. I know I would personally pay good money to see the enemy perspective of my IED attack in 2009.
