Wikileaks: Collateral Murder - Classified US Military Video Shows Indiscriminate Slaying of Dozens, Incl. Two Reuters Employees

WikiLeaks has released a classified US military video depicting the indiscriminate slaying of over a dozen people in the Iraqi suburb of New Baghdad -- including two Reuters news staff.

http://collateralmurder.com/

Reuters has been trying to obtain the video through the Freedom of Information Act, without success since the time of the attack. The video, shot from an Apache helicopter gun-site, clearly shows the unprovoked slaying of a wounded Reuters employee and his rescuers. Two young children involved in the rescue were also seriously wounded.

I don't know how you found your way here, but I'm glad you did.

I want you to know that there are millions of us that support you, and want to get you out of there.

There are millions of us that know that the true story of 9/11 was not as it happened, and that it has been manipulated to put you guys in harms way.

All one has to do is look at the FBI's top 10 most wanted and see that UBL has not been formally charged or indicted for the crime of 9/11. When the FBI was confronted about this, they simply said that they did not have hard evidence to link him to this crime.

If you want more evidence of this, I will be happy to provide it.

The main thing I wanted you to know, is that we support your brave effort to take a hard honest look at the illegal wars in Afghanistan, and Iraq, and Pakistan for that matter.

I would imagine that some of you are wondering why more people aren't visibly standing up in support of bringing you guys home, and stop this aggressive foreign policy.

I don't know what has happened to the "anti-war left". It is like they have become neutered.

Just know that there are many of us that will support you guys however we can. We appreciate you putting your life on the line.
We DON'T however appreciate you being used as pawns in a greater scheme of protecting oil pipelines, poppy fields, and corrupt drug dealing puppet Governments.

Maybe you can give us some insight as to how to get some info to your fellow soldiers, such as DVD's and other truth oriented material.

All we need are addresses and locations where we can send care packages to, and let the other guys know that we are aware of what is going on, and how they are being misused, and how we can develop a relationship to get some sort of action toward getting you guys home.

There are plenty of criminals here in DC, that need to be tracked down. I think they take priority over some goat herder with an RPG. You may disagree, but I would be interested in what you have to say.

Also, let your fellow soldiers know about the Daily Paul, so that we can hopefully offer some support to each other in these trying times.

Thanks for chiming in, and stay safe.

Plus +1. I would like to ad

Plus +1. I would like to ad that our military around the world should be brought home, stationed in areas that help the local economies and protect our borders, rested, re-equipped, and provided the financial assistance needed for them and their families to live a normal life.

It angers me to no end when I hear about the sacrifices our military personnel have to make on our behalf for peanuts when the companies in the Military Industrial Complex are making obscene profits from the military adventurism. If our government can pay mercenaries big bucks for putting themselves in harms way then it should likewise pony up and pay our military a decent wage for putting them in harms way. The best answer is bring our troops home.

Soldier

have you thought of coming to Canada?

I live here.
We have around 300 American soldiers here most of them keeping low profile living "underground".

But I have considered one day trying to change America. I plan to one day run for Congress, try to make a difference. I plan on being a big activist against war and current state of affairs in America when I go home.

Ventura 2012

plus he will get a lot of soldiers to become Oath Keepers while in Afghanistan.

you made the right choice

That is the spirit we need to change things from within
the country.

Myself I was born in Poland and as a teen faced tanks on the streets during Martial Law...went to Italy at 18...to Canada at 20 years of age.

I lived and visited US many times but in the last few years I am scared to cross the border.

At the moment I work as a volunteer for Jake Towne who runs for Congress in PA 15th district
his website is here -

I helped him raise some money with Money Bomb events -
let me know when you run for Congress and I will help you out.

Bishop was released three months early after Lt. Gen. Robert Cone, the top commander at Fort Hood, granted Bishop’s request for clemency in February. Bishop is now effectively out of the Army.

I don't want you over there either. Why don't you and those who you say feel like you just leave?

Couldnt risk jail time. I had

Couldnt risk jail time. I had to think of my family's immediate needs.

truth is

it is hard to get a job in America after one serves time in prison...

Death is the punishment

For Desertion.

Unconstitutional War - "The story you are about to hear is true; the names and places are being changed to protect the guilty."

Death is the punishment for everything

You want to see the true face of government revealed? Don't capitulate to it's demands, and attempt to defend yourself against it's aggression.

Whoa,What you are saying here then is

For these kids to just walk away from the lines and be shot for desertion?Do you really think this is the cure for the problem?Would you spit on them if they walked by you?

Unconstitutional War - "The story you are about to hear is true; the names and places are being changed to protect the guilty."

No. I'm suggesting they keep killing for the empire.

What's worse? A)Killing the innocent or B)facing the consequences of standing up to those who'd have you kill the innocent?

I choose A. I take it you think B is worse, don't you?

I guess it is easy to say

When it is someone else's life.

Unconstitutional War - "The story you are about to hear is true; the names and places are being changed to protect the guilty."

Negative

I was in the military. I got out. So have others.

Usually the right thing to do isn't the most easy thing to do.

my friend

I met soldiers living in a Church in Vancouver Canada they went AWOL before deployment and have to hide because Canadian government is refusing to grant them stay...and when they get caught they are deported and jailed right away in the US.

But none of those soldiers face more than a year or so in prison.

Legal?

The thing is,that in the military code of justice,the penalty can be death.If to many desert you can bet they will start killing to set an example.
It is just not as simple as "Why don't you just all come home?"

Unconstitutional War - "The story you are about to hear is true; the names and places are being changed to protect the guilty."

I agree

but I think the last time they actually killed a deserter was during the korean war if I am not mistaken.

But you are correct they have this power according to their books.

You are Correct

If one were to make it out of there and into the UCMJ structure, it is highly unlikely that one would receive the death penalty. There are not even 7 U.S. soldiers on death row. Their crimes that they were convicted of were not desertion, but were very violent and heinous crimes. The real risk is making it out of there without a battle buddy putting you in check first. Thats where the real risk comes in to play. Just an FYI...

Thank you for your comment

I Salute you and wish you good luck come back home alive and uninjured.

Tell other soldiers about Oath Keepers.
I am also a member and helped raise some money for them.
They have now almost 20,000 members we need more soldiers police and firefighters to join them.

Goodluck soldier!

Recruit some oath keepers while you are there,This is how we will succeed at this movement,We have to send some of the RIGHT people to the lines.

Unconstitutional War - "The story you are about to hear is true; the names and places are being changed to protect the guilty."

Have you considered refusing your next deployment?

If soldiers are still willing to follow illegal orders then nothing will change until the country goes bankrupt.

I actually considered

I actually considered refusing to go on my current deployment. I even spoke to the Lawyer based out of Texas that worked with some of the soldiers found on Courage to Resist website. We talked twice. I considered it long and hard. Even talked about getting supporters out to Ft Campbell if possible....

.....but then I had to think of my family. Two young kids... I couldn't risk up to a year of jail time.

So I went against my principles and deployed. But don't worry, I will be recruiting for Oath Keepers. I'm openly opposed to the war and constantly discuss politics. I've even told my chain of command that they're free to either bench me or send me home if they don't like my ideals.

Good news is, my ETS falls within the deployment and 101st no longer has stop loss. So I get to go home early!

Good for you Sir.

Either way it must be difficult for you.

There are no easy options in your predicament. I'm happy to hear that you are waking up fellow soldiers and if your commanders are aware of that, they may find a way for you to return to civilian life.

Good luck.

Be careful!

Conduct yourself lawfully and be an example for the others.
Grow the numbers of oath-keepers.
Come home safe, and watch out for what happened to Pat Tillman.

yeah

Pat Tillman was murdered because on coming home he would become the nr 1 peace activist in America.
