Video of Islamic State of Iraq Shooting Down an American Chinook Helicopter in Al-Karma

By Tar De Moutonnoir     Feb 9, 2007 in Politics
An American Chinook chopper being shot down by Iraqi insurgents over Al-Karma on February 7th 2007.
This is the fourth claim by the Iraqi umbrella group The Islamic State of such an attack in the span of six days and the sixth American chopper shot down in less than three weeks.
Seven American servicemen were killed in the downing of the Chinook helicopter.
It's evident, if you watch carefully, that the chopper was brought down by a projectile and not small arms fire, likely a shoulder held surface to air missile (SAM).
Possibly the Russian made Strella SAM.
