WASHINGTON, June 24, 2009 -- Embedded above is a video of an air weapons team engaging and killing insurgents when responding to the insurgents' complex attack on a small patrol base. Scenes include 14 insurgents carrying various weapons, a pilot of the Apache AH64 helicopter is heard verbally checking to make sure the militants are far enough away from any qalats, or Afghan homes, so that shooting the militants will not endanger any civilians and the Apache engaging the insurgents from the air while U.S. troops continue fighting the insurgents on the ground.
