Click to enlarge images:

Prison Planet is nukin futz pushing this non story.

Bloodthirsty neo-cons who would defend barbecuing Arab babies on the White House lawn if they were told it was part of the “war on terror” are disgracefully scrambling to defend a shocking video released by Wikileaks which shows U.S. Apache helicopters massacring Iraqi journalists and children in Baghdad while laughing about it.
Defend? You bet your ass when documentation shows otherwise[DOD PDF]. Get your story straight twoofers/NWO crazies and quit sympathizing with our enemy...k, such as this post by your friend? Ahmed Yassin 23 (Afghanistan) on a terrorist supporting forum Jawa Report infiltrated:
"As salamu aleykum

After publishing this video.
Some ppl in my country said "I hate america and I support what Al-Qaeda is doing''

Was salam"

File this under assmaggots.

Update: foobar links to True Slant who chimes in on Rusty's post. Ummm, True Slant, feel like a fool yet? Or do facts get in the way of your posts?

Now that the Wikileaks/DoD cover-up story has worked its way into the Yay-Genocidal-Old-Testament-Boo-Genocidal-Koran quarter of the blogosphere, the world is being treated to another round of attempted analysis from such folks who name their blogs in such a way as to remind everyone of the similarities between Arab dress and climate and those of a class of aliens depicted in Star Wars. Whoever runs this popular Jawa Report thing exhorts his readers to skip the hype
At least you did say popular, that I will hand you...but...doesn't get you off the hook for your dis-information. If all else fails - read the facts fool.

Update II by Howie: Note to True Slant. Boy you really have the slant on today huh.

None of these people had RPGs, for one thing
from the original video

In addition the the picture above you then actually read the reports, RPG's and rounds for them were found.

. Finally, the idea that they “returned fire” against people who clearly had not fired on them or anyone else insomuch as that they were clearly not engaged in combat
Er uhhh. Again if you read the full reports there were incidents of fire on our forces both before and after the clip in question. This was clearly within an area where a running battle was taking place. There were armed individuals in this group. The firefight continued after with more armed AIF forces being located and killed. Sure a lot of Iraqis have an AK, not a lot run into the street with them during a firefight. Unless they want to be apart of it. Guess these guys got their wish huh?


And then there's this...

Fascist U.S. Bloggers
Dear Barrett Brown, GFYS.

Update by Stable Hand Barret Brown corrected his post after reviewing our documentation.

The Jawa Report is running a detail of the video that almost certainly shows one of the men to have been holding an RPG. Nor is this likely to be a trick of light; if one watches the original video knowing what to look for, the fellow can briefly be seen swinging the RPG around a bit as he walks. So, in addition to the men with the AK-47s, you have at least one man with an RPG that may have been seen by the Apache gunner. Holding an RPG in an area in which Coalition forces have taken fire is a great way to get shot, and standing around with such a person who does so is also pretty hazardous, as is seen in the video.[...]

One more thing to note – despite having gone over this video quite a bit before releasing it, the Wikileaks folks did not make any indications of having seen the RPG in question. If they did, but decided to leave it unremarked upon, then this is clearly a case of anti-Americanism-at-all-costs on the part of the organization’s heavily European user base. I’m waiting to hear back from Wikileaks for an interview and will be asking them to address this.

At any rate, I’ll have more on this reasonably soon, but wanted to note that I was incorrect in determining that there was no RPG to be seen in the video; at the time I was writing, this hadn’t been shown to be the case, but I should have known that, until certain parts had been examined closely enough, the possibility still existed that an RPG would indeed be visible.

Now if he would kindly correct his mis-information about Bill Roggio and the Fascist bloggers header.
