Collateral Murder

This video features Ethan McCord, a US solider who tried to save the lives of two children fired upon by gleeful US troops aboard an Apache helicopter. The video documenting the murder of unarmed Iraqi civilians was released by whistleblower Bradley Manning, just sentenced to 35 years in prison for exposing systematic war crimes committed by the US government.

“The fact that a person acted pursuant to order of his Government or of a superior does not relieve him from responsibility under international law, provided a moral choice was in fact possible to him.” – Nuremberg Principle IV

As Iraq War veteran Ethan McCord states based on first-hand experience, the crimes revealed by this video are not anomalous; they are committed every day in America’s expanding theaters of aggression.
