Two United States Army Specialists speak out about the wikileaked "journalism" murders.

As a former Marine, while what they have to say is controversial, I believe strongly in what these two enlisted men have to say no matter how controversial. They have opened themselves up to public scrutiny to share with the United States and the world how the men and women on the ground are feeling about what has been and is currently going on. The enlisted man, not the three star general who's employment is "at will of the President" and who is therefore forced to be a political mouthpiece for the Executive Branch.

This is real #.

We need to digg this, we need to spread the word on this, these are the words of true Americans who ACTUALLY represent We the People of the United States of America.

Do not let this get silenced. Read what these two Soldiers have to say, give them the time of day, they said it for us, they could have easily chosen to just remain silent.

Don't discourage other Soldiers from doing what these Soldiers did by letting them be silenced. Their voices need to be heard.

I was touched by this, I understand that many of you will disagree with what they have to say, but as a Marine I can definitely at least understand what they are saying.

The Pentagon refused to apologize, so these two MEN stood up and did what should have been done and apologized anyway.

This is definitely not a hoax, regardless of if it is in the MSM.

Keep in mind the point of the Wikileaks video was to expose a cover up and not exactly to show the war actions, though those were bad too.

I think that you should really rethink that statement.

Just because something is in the MSM does not make it true.

I feel very, very sorry for you and your sad propagated mind.

I do not think he meant it. He was speaking paradoxically , it was more a swipe at the msm.

these soldiers do not have to apologize to anybody. they were just doing their job and their job description stated such actions should be taken. they are fighting for our country and that is a good enough excuse to slaughter villages full of women and children if they have to. we just have to figure out from what they are defending their country from, that is all.

This is touching and all... But would they be apologizing if Wikileaks NEVER blew their spot up?

Reminds me of Tiger Woods. Would he be so apologetic and sorry if he didn't get caught?

And to the poster above me who said that they were just doing their job... Well...

They didn't do it correctly!!! They killed innocent people!!!

This war sucks. All war sucks.

Edit to add: DOADOA - I just re-read your post. You can't be serious... How can you justify killing women and children civilians???! Wow. Just wow.

I've got to agree with you on this one . It's been almost three years since the events in the video . Why did they wait this long to apologize ?

Hmmm... Oh yea , the wiki video .
