Miraculously, not a single soldier was injured.

This U.S. Army infantry outpost spotted Taliban insurgents on a nearby ridge, and began engaging them with mortar fire. The soldiers called in a simultaneous airstrike, but some unknown miscommunication caused the pilot to drop a 500-pound bomb not on the Taliban insurgents, but on his own guys. Not only that, the outpost soldiers captured the entire incident on film.

Happy Osama Bin Laden Got Wasted Day!
