DEA FAST Team in Afghanistan

A mission with the Drug Enforcement Administration's special-ops Foreign Advisory and Support Team in Afghanistan. This was a capture/kill mission that took place on 9/11 to take out a taliban kingpin who was a large drug facilitator in Kandahar province. The raid turned up heroin, opium, precursor chemicals and bomb-making materials. The explosion toward the end of the piece is those items going up in smoke.
