Confirmed: German Jihadi Motivated by "Redacted" Movie Clip on YouTube Being Passed Around by Islamists as "Documentary" Evidence of US War Crimes

If I ever meet Brian DePalma, I'm going to kick him square in the nuts:

According to the German wire service dapd, the German Attorney General’s Office has confirmed that the video clip viewed by the Frankfurt Airport shooter Arid Uka — and that allegedly provoked him to kill American soldiers — was indeed the rape scene from Brian De Palma’s fictional anti-Iraq War movie Redacted....

Uka viewed the De Palma clip as part of a four-and-a-half minute propaganda video that was posted on a German-language YouTube page under the title “American Soldiers Rape our Sisters! Awake Oh Ummah.”

READ THE REST.

Yes, propaganda kills. This kind of propaganda convinces murderers that they are doing the right thing. And although the jihadi himself is responsible for the heinous act, De Palma and YouTube certainly contributed to the mindset that led to the attack.
