From the Defense Department comes this news release of the bombing of an Al Qaeda compound in Iraq:
WASHINGTON, March 11, 2008 – Three buildings that had served as an al Qaeda detention and torture facility were destroyed yesterday by a U.S. military bomber.
A B-1B Lancer bomber used six 500-pound, global positioning system-guided bombs to level the compound located in Zambraniyah, a village south of Baghdad, according to officials.
What impressed me was the picture provided. Click it for a full-screen version: and when that's displayed, click it again for a high-resolution image.
Notice the birds taking wing at the bottom left-hand corner of the picture? And the bomb just above the black cloud of smoke? Now that's what I call stop-action photography!
(And the results doubtless amount to stop-terrorist technology!)
