5. OK, so I watched the video

And it does appear that the helicopter fired on men doing... something... in the middle of a road. Where they planting explosives? Possibly, but since I'm not military I can't say for sure.

What I'm wondering is, if there hadn't been a pilot singing a song while doing what he did, would there have been a controversy? What if he were humming Flight of the Valkeries? What if he were singing Brittney Spear's "Hit Me Baby One More Time"? Because, without the brief 5-second song line, this appears to be like any one of thousands of by-the-book military strikes. Why does this one get such outrage and the thousands of others don't?
