I try to stay away from discussing any conspiracy theories or religious topics... but I had to share what I came across today - this really deserves all the attention it can get. Please take a few minutes, or at least read my brief summary... your thoughts on this? Here's the link - http://www.democracynow.org/2010/4/6/massacre_caught_on_tape_us_military Summary: This is leaked (by wikileaks.org) US military footage from April 2007 in Iraq. US helicopters are called in to check out an area because some "small fire arms" shots were heard bum fuck nowhere... The helicopters come across a reuters journalist and some civilians enthusiastic to see a foreign journalist. The pilots declare that this group is armed, and the reuters journalist is carrying an RPG (it's actually a camera, that looks nothing like an RPG!?) The pilots ask permission to "engage".. aka... kill everyone, permission granted. After the shooting, one wounded (reuters employee, journalist's driver) is seen crawling away... and a minivan pulls up to help the wounded. Pilots request permission to "engage" some more, granted again... small children can be clearly seen in the van prior to shooting. Everyone is killed. 20 minutes later the pilots decide to shoot missiles into an appartment building near-by... killing families inside and bystanders. You can clearly tell from the pilots tones / behaviour that this is just another day at the office... pathetic. Pentagon Reponse: Investigation was completed, all pilots / soldiers involved are cleared of any wrong doing... The report released to the media stated that the pilots were engaged in a fighting scene, and the journalist was a crossfire victim... as in it's his fault for getting into the fight. Better yet, all dead victims were classified as "insurgents" and not civilians. 1 US military soldier was charged a couple days ago for leaking the video. That's it, no one else had any charges against them. My Conclusion: US is even more corrupt and brainwashed than I thought it was... the pilots think it's a video game. Pentagon sees nothing wrong with it. US citizens still think US is fighting for freedom and hunting down "terrorists" in Iraq and Afghanistan. This is exposed to the whole world... governments... media... public... and all that happens is 1 person who leaked the video gets charged. This is beyond sad.
