The video, allegedly shot sometime in March, was uploaded to YouTube on May 9, 2014, and instantly went viral, collecting 750,000 hits in just a few days.
The video, showing a strange triangular UFO in the sky, reportedly was shot by a soldier standing next to a stationary armored column.
A split-second later, huge explosions erupt as the mysterious UFO hit the purported Taliban camp, sending up plumes of smoke.
After the smoke clears, the cameraman zooms in to shoot a close up view of the triangular-shaped aircraft, which looks unlike any known U.S. military drone.
KGRA radio shows the video is a hoax, created by blending two separate videos into one:
- A video of a purported UFO over Virginia, USA, released on October 10, 2013, which is also a hoax.
- A video of an explosion in Afghanistan, without any UFO, taken in October 2007, which has been “mirrored” or flipped, with the armored vehicle now on the right side of the screen, instead of on the left:
Sadly, KGRA’s debunking video has only 2,439 views as of my writing this post, which goes to show human beings not only are gullible, they actually prefer to be bamboozled instead of know the truth.
