(Newser) – Bombing your own base—not exactly a good war tactic. But apparently that's what the US did back in September 2012, as revealed in a YouTube video that recently came to light. A 500-pound bomb intended for a group of Taliban fighters in eastern Afghanistan instead came down near US troops. An investigation determined the air crew had the wrong coordinates. Nobody was injured.
