US army confirms Baghdad firefight video
The US military has confirmed as authentic a gritty war video circulating the Internet on Monday that shows US forces firing repeatedly on a group of men, some of whom were unarmed, as they walked down a Baghdad street.
A US military official confirmed that the video posted at Wikileaks.org was of a July 12, 2007 firefight in the New Baghdad District of eastern Baghdad.
Among those believed killed in that attack was Reuters photographer Namir Noor-Eldeen, 22, and his driver Saeed Chmagh, 40. Two children also were wounded.
The official, who was not authorised to speak publicly, said the military could not confirm the identities of the Reuters employees in the video.

it has gone viral, this video is already going on the air on national and international stations, not to mention it is already gaining tons of views on the internet, the government is not going to be able to kick this one under the rug.

For those who are pondering where to cast the blame ...
There is surely enough blame to go around ...
The soldiers involved, their immediate superiors , their superiors who tried to cover this up since the day it happened, the generals, the politicians, the presidents, their corporate masters, the media, the military industrial complex, the NSA, the CIA, many other governments including the British who tore up that country like many others long ago, those who conspired on 9/11, those who lied to get us into that and other wars ...
Most of all this is OUR fault, for we let all those things happen and keep letting them happen ... and even this unfortunately will probably blow over.
And why should any of the criminals change their behavior if we don't hold the accountable every time they do it. Heck they're probably laughing at our faces right now.
This is MY fault as much as anyones.

I can not believe you people are crying about war.
It is part of human reality.
There will always be war.
The real issue here is why these pesky reporters were there and why they think the run the planet.
And their dinky cameras can't beat death from above.
It is always some leftist reporters causing trouble and this time they caught it.
I say good shooting.
