 WikiLeaks has released a classified US military video depicting the indiscriminate slaying of over a dozen people in the Iraqi suburb of New Baghdad — including two Reuters news staff. 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. For further information please visit the special project website www.collateralmurder.com.  

 

The attack was earlier described in an official by US military officials  “There is no question that Coalition Forces were clearly engaged in combat operations against a hostile force,” Read the Official ReportHERE

 The report also said “Nine insurgents were killed in the ensuing firefight.  One insurgent was wounded and two civilians were killed during the firefight. “ 

The video contradicts clearly what the report said happened and it also coveys the people involved had attitudes about what they were doing one could consider disturbing. The audio is important to listen to.
