If you have not seen this yet, I had posted a link in an earlier post to a video clip of a PSC sniper in Iraq. The video has impact. The video is of private security troops interdicting hostile enemy targets (i.e. insurgents / terrorists) from a rooftop in Iraq may be taken place in April 2004 (Sadr’s Rebellion). The firing position may be CPA headquarters.
Two other stories on snipers in Iraq…
The first one is on a successful SAS operation, Marlborough.
The second is a record sniper shot in Iraq by a US soldier in theatre.
More details are available on both ops, but I have decided not to post them because they do not help validate the value of long range interdiction and simply jeopordize opsec.
