Russia's Ministry of Defense ended up the target of derision after releasing an image it claimed to be "proof" that the USA military forces were working with supposed Islamic State soldiers. From watching the video at the top that shows a clip from AC-130 Gunship Simulator: Special Ops Squadron, a video that was uploaded back in 2015, not anywhere close to November 9, 2017 as the images from the tweet would suggest. Here are the best war games on PC. It turns out that the images that the account used actually came from a game called AC-130 Gunship Simulator: Special Ops Squadron, a connection that was made over and over as more people recognized the similarities with a YouTube clip showcasing the game.

After military research site Conflict Intelligence Team and investigative website Bellingcat showed the images actually came from a 2015 computer game titled AC-130 Gunship Simulator: Special Ops Squadron and 2016 US war footage from Iraq, the ministry removed the post and explained its gaffe. To make things worse for Russia's Ministry of Defense, they didn't completely crop out the "development footage" disclaimer.

Democrats to question Sessions on Russian Federation meetings
Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his interactions with Russian representatives. Sessions also told the House committee that he did not recall an encounter with another campaign adviser, Carter Page.

Soon after people noted the dubious origin of the photographs, the defence ministry deleted its tweets, and removed the photographs from the corresponding Facebook posts. This is a work in progress.

"Regarding Abu Kamal, this is not the only case when the USA spares terrorists", Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov was quoted as saying by Russia's official TASS news agency on Tuesday. It later reposted the same statement with different images.

Oh, and Olivo's unit had 12 men on the field on a 4th-and-5 when New England elected to boot the ball away to the Broncos. Joseph needs to assert himself now and fire Brock Olivo in order to start fixing things on a awful special teams unit.

A spokesperson for the Russian defence ministry told media it was "carrying out checks on a civilian employee who mistakenly added photographs to the ministry's statement".

"These facts give indisputable evidence that the USA, which (pretends) before the world community an irreconcilable fight against global terrorism, in fact provides cover for combat-capable IS units to restore their forces, regroup and be used for promoting us interests in the Middle East", the statement said.
