Extra-Crispy Terrorists on the July 14th and 15th Menus

Here at Cafe' Blackfive, we have a menu special...

This video [NOT FAMILY RATED OR FOR THE MORE SQUEEMISH READERS] from July 14th shows AH-64 Apache helicopter crews (1st Battalion, 227th Aviation Regiment, 1st Air Cavalry Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division) engaging an insurgent mortar team following an attack on two coalition forces' bases. Scenes include insurgents firing mortar cannons, the insurgents driving away and Apaches engaging the insurgents. Produced by 1st Air Cavalry Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division Public Affairs.


On July 15th, after engaging a building containing Abu Jurah, a known car bomb (VBIED) maker in Arab Jabour, Coalition Forces spotted people leaving the building and loading injured individuals intoa a sedan and fleeing the scene.  An AH-64 Apache helicopter engaged the sedan causing some of the occupants to flee the vehicle into a second house.  Then, a precision air-strike from a USAF F-16 Viper is called in.  Two 500 pound bombs are then "delivered" to the insurgent house.
