Al Jazeera has obtained exclusive footage of US forces bombing one of their own outposts after it was overrun by Taliban fighters.

This particular incident happened two months ago in Kunar province, and it’s having repercussions on the way forces operate.

Al Jazeera’s Clayton Swisher joined US troops on patrol.
