Morning Joe -- Apache Blend

Now, I'm not a gratuitous poster of "slam cam" vids, but I watched this the other day on Military.com's Shock and Awe channel and was just transfixed.

Basically, if you ignore the dorky soundtrack and the jingoistic Bush quotes injected into the audio, this video has some very impressive imagery. I'm amazed at the clarity of the IR vid. But most of all, can someone in the DT audience explain to me how these gunships can seemingly surprise these bad guys like they do? I mean, these helos aren't THAT quiet and they seem to stay there for a while.

Help me here...

(And PS -- for those of you who've patrolled the mean streets of Iraq, you'll appreciate the sense of "get some"...I know I did...)
