Holy crap. Declassified footage of a US bombing of ISIS cash depots has been released and you can see the airstrike that made millions of dollars fly away in a swarm after the explosion. The money spreads all over the place.

CNN writes:

“It was a good strike. And we estimate that it served to deprive ISIL of millions of dollars,” said Gen. Lloyd Austin, head of the U.S. Central Command, using another name for ISIS. “And combined with all of the other strikes that we’ve done on ISIL’s gas and oil production and distribution capabilities and strikes against his economic infrastructure and the various sources of revenue, you can bet that (it) is feeling the strain on his checkbook.”
