ABC News has obtained a video shot by the Taliban that shows their attack on a U.S. outpost in Wanat, Nuristan that killed nine American soldiers on July 13, 2008. It was one of the deadliest attacks on U.S. forces in Afghanistan. The video shows Taliban fighters before and during the attack, as well as of them speaking to each other:

"Relax, brother," says one.


"Everything is fine in my area," says another.

According to an exclusive interview with Taliban commander Maulvi Manibullah, who claims to have organized the operation, the attack involved 150 Taliban fighters dispersed into 30 groups of five. They confronted a few dozen U.S. and Afghan soldiers.
