Ret. intel officer: US violated rules in Reuters shooting

From Raw Replay:

Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer told MSNBC’s Dylan Ratigan that US forces may have violated rules of engagement with the 2007 shooting of two Reuters employees in Baghdad.

I watched this video yesterday on Huffington Post in its entirety. It was very upsetting. The video was obtained by WikiLeaks.

From Huffington Post:

Calling it a case of “collateral murder,” the WikiLeaks Web site today released harrowing video of a U.S. Army Apache helicopter in Baghdad in 2007 repeatedly opening fire on a group of men that included a Reuters photographer and his driver — and then on a van that stopped to rescue one of the wounded men.

In the Ratigan interview with the gentleman from WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, he (Assange) says there is another similar video (a military whistleblower video) from Afghanistan – from May of last year where 97 people were bombed – that is going to be released through Wikileaks as soon as they “have finished their analysis”.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

  3. “… oh it’s Tiger Wood’s todger, quick get an exclusive!”

    In a nutshell -TtT!

    “We warn you this is disturbing and graphic”
    (war is like that, isn’t it?)

    “…line them all up – (ok, fire, fire)”

    Get us the hell out of there – and Afghanistan.


    Looking forward to reading your thoughts and analysis on this 5th.

    • Tiger’s todger is so passe.

      I wish he’d just shut up and go talk to his wife about his wandering member. I don’t give a shit.
