How to Create More Terrorists

The following video, which I cannot yet embed, shows an American helicopter gun-ship killing a dozen people in the Iraqi suburb of New Baghdad in 2007.

Those killed included two staff members of the Reuters news agency. Two children were also seriously wounded in the attack.

Reuters has been trying without success to obtain the video under America's Freedom of Information Act. On April 5th, the classified video was released by WikiLeaks.

Watch it here and watch American forces recruit more members for al-Qaeda.

Warning, the video is very graphic and disturbing.

Between 2003 and 2009, 139 journalists were killed in Iraq. Professor Scott Lucas at Enduring America has some immediate reaction to the video here.
