Did these guys pose a threat to anyone? What was the reason they got shot?
Sure, MAYBE they were planting IED's, but if that was not confirmed, how come shoot them?
Surely there must be a reason for this act?
And why use an expensive missile to kill them? I am sure the machine gun on the chopper could suffice. Or were they too far away?
So many questions, and seemingly so little answers.

Singing American Pie should be a court martial offense in every civilized military.
Good on the pilot for taking out the IED emplacer, though. The NATO troops or Afghan civilians who are alive because of his actions will probably never know his name.
But to me this is the equivalent of shooting some one in the back. They have no way of defending themselves - no warning - no nothing.
