    mad Leaked footage from Apache showing "US military slaughter" in Baghdad

    Wikileaks can be found here:

    WikiLeaks

    The video can be viewed here:

    YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.

    WikiLeaks has posted a video on its website which it claims shows the killing of civilians by the US military in Baghdad in 2007.
    The website's organisers say they were given the footage, which they say comes from cameras on US Apache helicopters.
    They say they decrypted it, but would not reveal who gave it to them.
    BBC News - WikiLeaks posts 'killing' video

    I served in Iraq and witnessed many strategic errors that cost the lives of many innocents, but unfortunately war is trial and error and we need to learn from our mistakes and minimize the risk while increasing success.

    This footage depicts one of those mistakes, but the killings where unintentional and nobody is to blame but those who ordered the operation. I know as i have seen that there are many more videos yet to be brought to the public eye and its only a matter of time they do.

    The video clearly shows some of the men were armed. It's not the U.S. military's fault the insurgents were using children as a human shield. Despicable.

    The people to blame are the terrorists and the civilians that shelter them.

    Pilot stated it right there at the end... what the hell are they doing bringing kids in a truck to a place where clearly there are 8 to 10 body's stewn across the place? It's a dangerous business taking pictures in such an area and without notifying the U.S. Army before going there. The army had no way of knowing journalists where there - and they were killed because of it. The other men there had RPG's and AK's in an open area. Unfortunate, but clean engagements. Hopefully lessons are learned from this.

    Well said. No sympathy from me on this.

    Those cameramen were with armed guys with a group of 4 Humvees coming down the road hiding behind a building.

    And how did that van get there that fast? I'd love to know that one.

    Wow... You are all grotesque. Those men attacked noone. The van with kids was obviously random good citizen trying to help someone with no weapons that is hurt. They purposely allowed unarmed non-combatents to be murdered via shoddy rules of engagement.

    It always amuses me when idiots and terrorist sympathizers expect troops to ignore the enemy or stand there and just get shot just because the enemy is using human shields.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
