The US military is already using the same template used to create ISIS-inspired soldier training videos to teach new recruits how to carry out terrorist attacks, according to a report published Wednesday.
The Washington Post and New York Times first reported that the US Army is already working on a template to teach how to use an explosive device to attack military personnel.
The US military has been training soldiers in the bomb-making and gun-to-gun training techniques used to launch coordinated attacks against military and civilian targets for decades.
In September 2016, the US military said it had used the training to train recruits in how to prepare to carry a weapon in the event of a terrorist attack.
The military’s Special Operations Command, or SOCOM, recently released a training manual for special operations troops that outlines the “preparing to be an active shooter” training method and outlines the steps soldiers must take to prepare for the attack.
The training manual also recommends training soldiers to avoid getting too close to people or groups of people they don’t know.
