Collateral Murder

Boy am I glad I am not in the US military. This is just what George Bush always wanted. …

He was sitting on this throughout the general election:

Can someone tell me how to embed the video and hold it as my front page, please?

All that cat calling about lipstick on pigs, Obamma's name and the general rednecked ignorance about Islam. And the Pentagon and White House were sitting on this.

So what else is new? What other dirty little secrets are going down as heroic action from our boys. Boy am I glad it wasn't me shooting those poor bastards.

  1. Reuters has been trying to obtain the video through the Freedom of Information Act, without success since the time of the attack. The video, shot from an Apache helicopter gun-site, clearly shows the unprovoked slaying of a wounded Reuters employee and his rescuers. Two young children involved in the rescue were also seriously wounded.

  2. For me, while truly hard to watch, the situation will be debated, and we should have that debate, war sucks.Even bigger, this kind of stuff is the truth of war, its often glossed over and given candy coated coverage so we dont see the truths. Wikileaks is brave, and as much as they offer that this will harm, the only ones who don't know whats really going on for the most part is the general population.

  3. It's worse, as we aught to have expected:Originally posted by The Times:

    US special forces soldiers dug bullets out of their victims’ bodies in the bloody aftermath of a botched night raid, then washed the wounds with alcohol before lying to their superiors about what happened, Afghan investigators have told The Times. Two pregnant women, a teenage girl, a police officer and his brother were shot on February 12 when US and Afghan special forces stormed their home in Khataba village, outside Gardez in eastern Afghanistan. The precise composition of the force has never been made public. The claims were made as Nato admitted responsibility for all the deaths for the first time last night. It had initially claimed that the women had been dead for several hours when the assault force discovered their bodies. Rupertmobile if ever there was one. Leaves me wondering why this company has only just decided to start poking into the truths of the Bush era.

    "I am the commander of the men who accidentally killed your loved ones," Adm McRaven told Haji Sharabuddin. "I came here today to send my condolences to you and to your family and to your friends. I also came today to ask your forgiveness for these terrible tragedies."
