I agree with you here. I had a hard time seeing the children until I got a bit closer to the screen and those tripods look a heck of a lot like weapons if you lean back. Without the background noise and back story this event would have looked fairly normal until that van shows up.

If it hasn't already, this video footage needs to be handed over to the relevant authorities and all those involved in this atrocity should stand trial & be brought to justice. Absolutely disgraceful.

I understand how hard it is to be a soldier and bad things happen * * *.

If you guys made threads wringing your hands about all the people Islamic extremists kill everyday, I might give you the benefit of the doubt. Unfortunately most of you seem dead set on proving how evil the US, while selectively ignoring facts.
The video shows military personnel aboard the Apaches indicating they spot the suspects toting several AK-47s and several RPG's. But WikiLeaks contends that the Reuters photographers were only carrying cameras, which the military mistook for weapons. The helicopters circled multiple times before opening fire. "Keep shooting!," yells a U.S. soldier recorded in the chopper radio traffic. "Oh yeah, look at those dead bastards," responds another. "Nice!" adds a third. A military official confirmed the authenticity of the video to The Associated Press.

That´s it for America.

I hope everyone learns one thing from today's video; whether you feel it justified or not. I hope everyone realizes that when government refuses to show proof that they have in their possession to the American people and claim a story where there is no fault on their part...we can be assured we are being lied to.
Taking this into account, I see a clear parallel to the cover up of videos of the 9/11 Pentagon attacks. There was video, that they refused to release. We now know the MO of our government. This video proves they will lie about facts while in possession of facts that counter their story. One can only imagine how much we have been lied to about.
