JIN's Cautionary Tale

An NBC Nightly News report from May 2005 features the Joint IED Neutralizer (JIN), which was designed to send half a million volts into the ground to "pre-detonate" blasting caps in the ground. "This is pretty out of the box, and-this is what we're looking for, quite honestly," said Brig. Gen. Joseph L. Votel at the time. Video provided courtesy NBC.Video provided courtesy NBC
