Marine Sniper Hits Taliban Fighter

Helmand Province, Afghanistan - Moments after taking fire, U.S. Marines spot an armed Taliban fighter across the Helmand River where the ambush came from. After receiving clearance and confirming that he is in fact a Taliban fighter, the Marine Designated Marksman engages with a suppressed MK-12. This is a typical engagement for Marines fighting in Afghanistan, and contrary to popular belief, confirmation of targets is confirmed before engaging.
