New 'Liberation Video' Shows Fallujah Bombing Massacre
Whether these individuals were protesters or 'insurgents,' the way the guy laughingly exclaims 'oh dude!' gives an indication into the mindset of these people and the air of superiority and brutality held toward people that were supposed to have been 'liberated'.
Do militia who know they are a target freely roam on open roads when they know F-16's are circling overhead? Was this is protest or just a group of Iraqis who were on their way to an event? We've seen in the past how wedding celebrations were bombed.
Another example of how 'freedom' is spreading through Iraq after its 'liberation'. These Iraqis should count themselves lucky that they weren't tortured, urinated on, or made to perform homosexual acts.
A graphic US military video showing the killing of three Iraqi people is being circulated via the web after appearing on US TV news channel ABC News.
The one-minute file, filmed from a US Apache helicopter, shows three suspected Iraqi insurgents being shot with 30mm cannon fire. The clip was cut from a longer video obtained by ABC News last week and verified by a senior US army official.
The MPEG format file has been posted to several right-wing US forums, where the effectiveness of the Apache's firepower has been celebrated.
So far though, in spite of its graphic nature, the film does not seem to have attracted much attention from the anti-war movement.
Tony Sleep, a freelance photographer in the UK, was one recipient of the file. He was emailed a link to a US academic site that temporarily hosted the MPEG file.
"It's very uncomfortable to watch because it's so calculated,"
he told dotJournalism. "It's quite pornographic actually."
