26. Indiscriminate Fire.
I'm sure that most of you have seen footage of the aftermath of the firefight in Samarra.

What struck me the most was seeing the hundreds of bullet holes in buildings, from the ground floor up to the 4th (or 5th) floor. This certainly indicated to me that rounds were sprayed everywhere and not in a targeted manner.
