I suggest that you avoid reading the below text and begin the video at 2:45. Otherwise it may be difficult to watch it without any bias. Please remember that we aren’t professionals at analyzing military footage, and that, although helpful, the tags provided can be misleading. Once you’re finished, I suggest reading a Harper’s Magazine article published in May 2009 about christian extremism in the US military.
Wikileaks has obtained and decrypted this previously unreleased video footage from a US Apache helicopter in 2007. It shows Reuters journalist Namir Noor-Eldeen, driver Saeed Chmagh, and several others as the Apache shoots and kills them in a public square in Eastern Baghdad. They are apparently assumed to be insurgents. After the initial shooting, an unarmed group of adults and children in a minivan arrives on the scene and attempts to transport the wounded. They are fired upon as well. The official statement on this incident initially listed all adults as insurgents and claimed the US military did not know how the deaths ocurred. Wikileaks released this video with transcripts and a package of supporting documents on April 5th 2010 on http://collateralmurder.com
