Please show me in the video where you see cold blooded murder...go ahead break it down frame by frame with military analysis like I did. I'll wait -
no problem. Did you even look at the analysis? If so please tell me what experience you have in reviewing engagements during a 15-6 investigation,
or even any military investigation for that matter. Also, lay out your experience in combat and or leading Soldiers in Iraq or hell, any war for that
matter. I am certain it dwarfs my own.
Do you even know what the ROE were in the theater at the time. I do. Any armed person was a target. All the Iraqis knew this, all the journalists
knew this. They were covering a story and got killed for it. Comes with the territory just like a Soldier.
As for the dip# in the van - again all the Iraqis know not to go into an area in which we are engaging targets to "be good Samaritans" we made it

because we to them to the military hospital for treatment. They would have died more likely than not had some “good Samaritan” taken them to an
If you went speeding into a police standoff in your car to “be a good Samaritan” and rush to the aid of some criminals who just got shot by the
police what do you think would happen? Perhaps they would think you were an accomplice and shoot you too? That’s here not even in a war zone.
Again, don’t take your car full of kids into a firefight…basic parenting 101.
