I never actually saw it before, just went by the media reports.

Was watching a vid of a US gunship shooting up a Reuters news crew. That's what they said it was. No reason to doubt though.

Maybe our governments should be held accountable. Maybe if governments can hide everything they do, then they will be out of control and will act without constraint or morality.

Is this any different than a video of police brutality in Austin or Cleveland?  Maybe this stuff should come out and be seen.

Paul,


I have seen that ENTIRE unedited video...let's just say that there was some 'creative' editing by wiki-leaks.  The video crew was mixed in with the Taliban and when the cameras pointed at the gunship, it looks EXACTLY like a shoulder fired missile.  These guys had less than 1 second to make a decision and to react in the heat of battle.  They did the correct thing and it was a perfectly legal kill even under the Geneva Convention.

The same argument is used to justify police killing of unarmed citizens.

seems to me those guys who were armed.

Wiki leaks also leaked the brutal torture of Iraq civilians by Saddam's regime so they aren't that biased. I do think they have become more biased in recent years.

It does look like they have guns.

But the concept of being able to check up on our governments sounds good to me.

Amnesty International was supposed to be unbiased, but that didn't last long. Now they are leftist, feminist. So Wikileaks unbiased?
