The editor of one of the internet's biggest sources of classified government information says there is strong evidence to suggest that video footage of an alleged US attack on Iraqi civilians is genuine.

Julian Assange, the editor of WikiLeaks.org, told Al Jazeera that the footage, released on Sunday, corroborates witness testimony.

AJ English's article on this: Website 'shows video of US attack'

And their blog: WikiLeaks vs the Pentagon

1. People should watch this- analysis and more facts from Julian.

I would not be surprised if a major news magazine (or a few of them) picks this up but until then his analysis is extremely revealing. Especially about the 6-12 people killed after the events of the main shooting, something I believe which is covered in the full guncamera video- the 40-ish minute version.

2. The BBC have picked up on it
I posted about it here in GD: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

It's good to hear this revealing insight from Julian directly, as you say.

I could only make it half way through the 40 minute video so this is the 1st I've heard of the people on the roof being killed.

5. Here is what I wrote to my Representative and Senators.

I am glad this video is out so people can see what our Government is doing to innocent people.
I'm including the site I first saw it on so you can see the comments. You continue to support this illegal war and occupation. Innocent children continue to be killed by our military. This video just shows one, just one incident. We continue to kill innocent fathers, brothers, sons, daughters, mothers, sisters. Their blood is on your hands. You continue to vote to fund the military. You vote against bringing the troops home now. You continue to escalate the # of troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. How many more innocent children have to be killed by our government before you vote to bring the troops home?
