Jaded Russia’s ‘proof’ that U.S. helps ISIS is from a video game.

Mistakes happen, Kremlin says.

The image provided by the Russian Defense Ministry was damning: three Islamic State trucks led by an armored vehicle on their way to a key battlefield in eastern Syria, allowed safe passage by the United States.

If you’re a gamer interested in air combat simulators, you may have already seen the convoy before you gunned downed digital enemies on your computer screen while playing AC-130 Gunship Simulator: Special Ops Squadron, released in 2015 by the Byte Conveyor game studio.

Even if that were a real image, what is the proof that the vehicles in it are ISIS vehicles or that the US is allowing them safe passage? They could be anyone's vehicles or the commander of the gunship could simply be waiting until they reach an unpopulated area before opening fire (one of the weapons of an AC-130 gunship is a 105 mm howitzer cannon, not exactly the kind of thing you want to be using near innocent people).
