(Fake) Video shows triangular shaped aircraft attack Taliban camp in Afghanistan

A mysterious triangular shaped airborne object attacks Taliban camp in a video allegedly filmed by U.S. Marines. Genuine or fake? Fake.

The following footage was allegedly filmed in Afghanistan by U.S. Marines that captured this footage of what looks like an Unidentified Flying Object, hovering over a Taliban camp in Afghanistan before attacking and destroying it.

Although triangle-shaped, hence resembling the mysterious planes spotted over Kansas and Texas, the UFO seems to be smaller than the two aircraft photographed at high altitude over Continental U.S.

Here’s a screenshot showing the aircraft.

Is the video genuine?


Here’s an interesting analysis.

The footage was posted on a Youtube channel with tons of videos of spacecrafts and UFOs, some of which are clearly fake, doctored videos.

Even if secret drones and new stealth planes really exist, this video is probably not among the evidences of those Black Projects and the triangular aircraft was added in post-editing on a video of an ammunition pile being detonated.

  1. Anyone notice the secondary detonation approximately one second after the initial? It leads me to believe that it is an ammo dump being detonated.

    • You mean the stuff that was lifted by the first explosion and then it detonated at altitude? It’s the coolest thing in this video!

  2. This is the original footage. Why do these idiotic hoaxers such as ‘Sector51’ think that nobody will find the original footage? Note that the hoaxer has mirrored the footage. The footage is from Iraq and has been on there since at least 2007. Simply a strike on a car bomb factory. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8oTjTufJnXI

  3. It’s amusing to see actual news outlets pick up on this and show how badly they are at fact checking.

  4. No problem. The person that created the hoax video is even complaining that people are ‘stealing’ his video and threatening reporting them to You Tube. Can you believe it! It is simply nothing more than a revenue making channel as they create these videos hoping that they go viral and rake up the hits.. He/She has stacks of hoax videos. Yes, I agree far too many gullible people!
