High Value Targets

Pakistan - High Value Targets

al-Qaeda High Value Targets captured and killed in Pakistan. Posted originally after the strike by U.S. forces on Damadola, Pakistan - amid speculation that Ayman al-Zawahiri was killed in the attack. Revised version currently reflects that Midhat Mursi al-Sayid ‘Umar was killed in the attack. [Per reports on January 26, 2006 that the photo provided by rewardsforjustice.net of Mihat Mursi al-Sayid ‘Umar was not him - the image has been removed from the presentation.]

Iraqi Insurgents Foiled

Iraqi Insurgents Foiled

Note: As several readers - and our own earlier thoughts concluded - this video is not new, and it hasn’t been confirmed to be footage from an AC-130H. It is likely to be from a helicopter guncrew. The text we provide below is a summary of the text that accompanied the video when we found it.

Iraqi insurgents planting roadside bombs increasingly run the risk of coming under the watch of U.S. military observation platforms. Snipers, UAVs and aircraft hunt for those attempting to strike at Iraqi and Coalition forces.

The following gun-camera footage was taken from an AC-130H Spectre gunship circling from well over two miles away. Note how the gun crew patiently observes the enemy tactics over time, then confirms and engages the targets. The insurgents never knew they were under observation and never had a chance to react.
