US Defense Department releases video depicting US-Iranian confrontation

The US Defense Department released video Friday it says depicts the entire confrontation last Sunday between US and Iranian naval forces in the Gulf. The more than half-hour video, shot by a crew member on the bridge of the destroyer USS Hopper, was unedited, said, Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman. The often uneven and grainy video shows crew members answering radio calls and monitoring the five Iranian boats and for much of the time follows one or more of the fast boats moving around the US ships.
