    Not necessarily, but the Apache crew almost certainly believed the people they fired on where a threat to other US soldiers.

    Yeah we are so damn good, that the Iraqis have basically been forced to accept our rule since like 6 months after the invasion started. And eventually we are going to leave Iraq so that whatever left over resentment will evolve into a civil war or some bs crap that will most likely revert to us having to go back and kick their ass.....again.

    In Iraq.....I don't care much for Afghanistan because the two are not related and if you continue to believe the two are the same then.....

    That is not showed in the video... But what is showed is there willingness to purposely allow unarmend non-combatents to be shot because the law was on their side. They never, ever posed a threat to anyone of the US. Never once did they point a barrel at any person from what I can see in the video. But from the very begining a very big barrel was pointed at the murdered. This whole situation is so easy to figure out by simply listening to the glee of the shooter.

    Based on the video evidence, at the time, I would have believed the same thing.

    At one point where a man is seen crouching, looking around the corner at the Apache with something that looks like an RPG, it was a reasonable mistake to make.

    By the way, I wonder why nobody is asking why the photographers (journalists) were with a group of insurgents??? It seems to me that would be a good place to start investigating, on top of other investigations that may happen.

    As my work revolves around the arts and to a large extent photography - RIP to one of my brothers who died doing what they loved.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
