Video Shows U.S. Troops Firing on Reuters Reporters and Iraqi Children

WikiLeaks has released a classified US military video depicting the indiscriminate slaying of over a dozen people in the Iraqi suburb of New Baghdad -- including two Reuters news staff. Reuters has been trying to obtain the video through the Freedom of Information Act, without success since the time of the attack. The video, shot from an Apache helicopter gun-site, clearly shows the unprovoked slaying of a wounded Reuters employee and his rescuers. Two young children involved in the rescue were also seriously wounded. For further information please visit the special project website www.collateralmurder.com.

Dylan Ratigan interviews WikiLeaks Co-founder Julian Assange, who states that the intention behind releasing the video is to show how "modern aerial warfare is done and to reveal the extent of the debasement and moral corruption of soldiers as a result of war."
