As United States soldiers continue to absolutely eviscerate and annihilate Islamic State terrorists, an anonymously released video from the battlefield has triggered a military investigation.
A video uploaded by an unknown source reportedly shows a U.S. soldier firing his weapon into a vehicle full of occupants. The video, which is just over three minutes long, doesn’t say where it was recorded, but some suggest it may have been from last year.
But the video has sparked controversy into whether the U.S. soldier, assuming it actually was an American, shot his weapon into a car of innocent civilians. Naturally, YouTube censors were all over the mysterious “lethal” force.
In the video clip below, an armored military vehicle can be seen passing a slow-moving civilian vehicle in Afghanistan.
The footage appears to be recorded from a helmet camera, which shows a military-style shotgun being pointed at the truck cabin. The driver’s side window can then be seen shattered as if it had been shot.

In one of the final pushes to take back the Nangarhar Province, one of the last strongholds held by ISIS in Afghanistan, U.S. special operations advisers have been working with Afghan troops.
In a statement, United States Central Command – also known as CENTCOM – wasn’t pleased with how the situation looked despite no solid evidence about what may or may not have taken place.
“The amateur video posted on a public website gives us serious concern. The video in question is not official, not authorized and does not represent the professionalism of the service members of U.S. Central Command.
“We are conducting an investigation into this video, and will take appropriate actions as a result of this investigation.”
It’s also important to stress that U.S. soldiers are faced with a plethora of dangerous encounters every single day, where they are forced to remain alert at all times from any possible threats – including attacks from radical Islamic terrorists.
While the previous administration appeased these radical jihadists, President Donald Trump has eased the rules of engagement and allowed our troops to do whatever is necessary to protect themselves in combat.
Trump has made it clear that defeating these terrorists is a top priority, and maybe that is why this American soldier felt the need to defend himself.
