Its all over the news even here in Canada.

To bad, it doesn't look good for your boys. Having said that look at what they are fighting...those insurgents, are enough to make anyone a tad trigger happy. And that war is enough to make one callous.

I have no doubt that being in combat is extremely stressful, and most of us, if we're lucky, will never have the slightest idea what it's like. But this video shows how a group of unarmed men, one, maybe two of whom are carring cameras with long lenses, can be mistaken for insurgents armed with AK47s and RPGs. The killing of innocent civilians, including two members of the press, along with the wounding of two children, is a major screwup. And if not for the two members of the press being among the victims, we would never have known about it. So the real story has become the cover-up.
