We Are All Responsible, Now

Glenn Greenwald says we are all responsible now for the murder of a Reuters journalist, his driver, and several others, and the serious maiming of two children, who were shot by U.S. troops in 2007. Our military falsely claimed that the victims were taking hostile action and then refused to release any supporting evidence. Now, we know why: the only evidence was damning of the military itself.

Wikileaks today released a leaked videotape of the crime. The video was taken by a U.S. Apache helicopter. Judge for yourself, as in a democracy we must, whether the murders, the lies, and the cover-up by our own military are corrosive to our morality and freedom.
