Afghanistan's Deadliest Snipers

S2, E8: Afghanistan's Deadliest Snipers

Available on HISTORY Vault
They killed 3,000 U.S. citizens on a single day...on U.S. Soil. Al-Qaeda and Taliban extremists...still on the loose...and still actively planning death and destruction. For five years, heroic U.S. Servicemen and their allies have hunted these murderers. Special Forces Captain Jason Amerine links up with pre-Taliban-era statesman Hamid Karzi and orchestrates a bombing campaign that forces the Taliban to surrender Kandahar and escape into the hills. 10th Mountain Division and 101st Airborne Division soldiers kill or capture hundreds of Al-Qaeda fighters and Taliban hold-outs in Operation Anaconda. And a U.S. Marine task force roots out and takes down dozens more terrorists in the birthplace of the Taliban -- the Oruzgan Province in south-central Afghanistan. The on-going search for enemy combatants in the mountains of Afghanistan has brought both battlefield successes...and heartbreaking tragedies...like the death of pro football-star-turned-soldier, Pat Tillman. This is the story of the gun battles from that search...harrowing, deadly shootouts...from the Hunt for Afghanistan's Most Wanted.
