EOD Drop Outs

This thermal footage was recorded from an AC-130 gunship that was a mile or more away. No rounds were fired by the aircraft. Some jihadists were trying to conjure up an IED made from a 155mm artillery shell. Evidently, they lost the instruction manual. Problem resolved with no U.S. intervention required.

These guys should have been more attentive in Explosive Ordnance Disposal school.
