Wikileak Video -- Politically Overblown and Stupid






Here is the "Wikileak" video posted yesterday that shows the "shocking murder" of Iraqi civilians and reporters.

Give me a break.

What I see in this video is a group of armed men assembling in an area where U.S. troops were conducting operations. One of them was also holding something that looked suspiciously like an RPG (to me, and to the Apache as well). Furthermore, it is very clear from the dialogue in the video that the soldiers really believed that the people were militants.

Oh, as for the the "children" in the video riding along in the van, there is no way that you could tell that they are children.

It was a mistake, a tragedy (as all death is), but not a crime.



What do you think of the video? Leave me a comment!

Bonus: Wikileaks take on the situation. Do you agree or disagree?
