(PHOTO TAKEN WITH NIGHT VISION GOGGLES): A U.S. Marine illuminates a building using an infrared laser only visible using night vision goggles while on a search operation for insurgents in the early hours of Feb. 1, 2007 in Ramadi, in Iraq's Anbar province. Buildings near the Government Center were destroyed by U.S. troops to deprive insurgents of shooting positions. American forces used night vision goggles, taking advantage of technology to aid the element of surprise and reduce the effectiveness of insurgent snipers on U.S. forces.
