WikiLeaks raw US Apache footage




This Wikileaks footage shows Reuters journalist Namir Noor-Elden and her driver Saeed Chmagh being shot at by the Apache. The attack occurred in a public square in Baghdad and they were assumed to be militants. After the initial shooting, a minivan full of adults and children drove into the square and were fired upon as well. The US military listed the adults as militants and claimed they did not know how the deaths occurred.

  1. most looked like journalists to me. definetely not looking or acting like terrorists. but there were 2 or more armed members of the party and 1 even took cover and apparently was attempting to engage the apache. NOT a smart move! you may think they cant see you but they most likely can.

    this was very tragic but the cause was poor judgement on both parties part. the journalists should have realized this could happen if associating with armed individuals in a war zone.
    but the apache gunner should have recognized they just didnt look or act like insurgents imo. but such is the fog of war and why it should only be entered into as a last resort.

  2. it's very odd we see this all the time on our streets in england and the states but we don't incinerate them ..l guess it's war ..Before someone says well people don't carry rocket launchers down town on a Friday nite ..that's a good point

  3. Three dudes with ak47s clearly visible at 0:58 In the middle of the crosshairs. At that moment it was certain they all had to die. Not saying it was the right thing to do just saying that maybe they weren’t totally innocent either…

  4. Here's an idea…don't hang out with terrorists as they're attacking coalition forces if you don't want to be killed. Saaed and Nasir felt the consequences of their ignorance. Again, hang out with child raping, women beating, drug dealing, kidnapping terrorists cowards and you might live long enough to watch entertaining videos like this.
