Default U.S. Forces kill Reuters News Staffers

Not sure if anyone saw the video, on wikileaks, but it was pretty disturbing. Not just the killing, but the actual callous disregard for human life and dignity, then they wonder why most of the world despises them. These guys act almost like it's a video game. I guess that is what happens when you put a bunch of cowboys in multi-million dollar killing machines.

Anyway after years of stalling by the Pentagon, (the incident occured in 2007) before someone leaked it, the defense chief still defends the troops rather than admitting, "hey, maybe we need to train our guys better so they stop killing allies and innocent civilians."

I will look for the actual video of the attack and post it, but be warned it isn't pretty.
