    Seems taking out dadulla has had a major impact on afghan operations, so much so they have resorted to faking the videos, USA troops don't prefer faked attacks, they can't kill any taliban or al qaeda in fake attacks.

    But attacking abandoned posts at night is safe.

    Video Shows Alleged Attack on Afghan Military Post in Dabgay

    A 10-minute video titled "Attack on an Apostate Base in Dabgay," released June 2, 2007 by Al-Qaeda's production company Al-Sahab, shows a mortar and gunfire attack on a base of the Afghan military in Khost province, allegedly carried out on May 24, 2007.

    The film, which is subtitled in English, begins with reconnaissance footage of the base, and then shows the mujahideen marching towards it and attacking it by night.

    Several features of the film raise doubts as to the authenticity of the attack. For example, there are no signs of answering fire, and no calls of "Allah Akbar" as typically accompany the launching of mortars in other jihad videos. A previous Al-Sahab video of an attack on a military compound in Afghanistan, posted on February 2007, was likewise of doubtful authenticity. [1]
