MoD releases 'drone porn'

The Sun: Drone Porn

The British Ministry of Defence (MoD) has released two videos showing attacks by British Reaper drones.   

The two videos, released via youtube, shows a drone missile “neutralising” a ‘Taliban bomb factory’  and another killing someone allegedly planting an improvised explosive device.  

While the US regularly releases what has become known as ‘drone porn’, this is the first time that the British MoD has done so.  Already, that bastions of good taste, The Sun, has lapped up the footage and is reporting that the alleged IED planter was turn ‘to pink mist‘.

Over the past two years the MoD has so far flatly refused to give any details about the circumstances of the 120+ attacks by British Reaper drones saying repeatedly that to do so would endanger the lives of British servicemen.  These concerns however seem to have been forgotten in order to release mere propaganda proclaiming the accuracy and lethality of their latest weapons system.
