Surreal - Surreal

We now have embeds with 'the enemy'. PBS has footage of a guy, an Afghani journalist, who went along with a group who set IED on the Northern route in Afghanistan. This is way beyond the scary "re-education tours" often given to journalists who don't provide the right view.

I could be wrong, but, during a conflict, I don't think I've seen anything like it, ever. Did we ever get footage from the Viet Cong, for instance? This is not homemade propaganda video of successful attacks. It's coverage of an entire enemy sortie, start to finish, complete with some individual interviews with members of the team and sketches of their backgrounds.
