113. So anxious to engage they ignored the ROE
and ignored making a positive ID by zooming in on the people they suspected of carrying weapons who in fact were carrying cameras. They didn't do that when they figured out they fucked up and the insurgents they were looking for were at the site two to three hundred yards exactly where the initial insurgent incident had taken place WITH the weapons they were so sure they saw the journalists carrying.

There is a marked difference in the behavior of the group with the insurgents and the actual insurgents they finally did find back at the original site with the original weapons. You would have noticed that had you been paying attention while watching the long version of the video that Wikileaks generously provided for you to watch. The group with the journalists were walking casually in the middle of the street and meandering about the area while the real insurgents acted hurried and furtive and darted into the building where the initial incident occurred carrying actual weapons in there hands that they tried to conceal they were carrying and not casually slung over their shoulders on a strap or obviously exhibiting them.

Yeah, you're going by what you see and aren't being the least bit honest or objective about it, condemn others for not doing better research when you didn't even know it was Wikileaks who obtained and made public the long version of the video that you use to condemn Wikileaks. You somehow managed to NOT see that in requesting permission to shoot at the wounded man and the people trying to help him that there were no weapons in evidence yet the it was claimed in requesting the green light to fire that they were picking up the body AND WEAPONS when they very clearly were not and no weapons were evident anywhere around them.

If killing unarmed civilians and violating the ROE and the military covering up the whole incident and lying about it and trying every which way to thwart and encrypt the evidence to further try to keep it hidden is nothing to get worked up over you are on the wrong website... but we already noticed that which is why some have been curious as to your appetites concerning pizza.
