from crooks and liars :

"A "trophy" video appearing to show security guards in Baghdad randomly shooting Iraqi civilians has sparked two investigations after it was posted on the internet, the Sunday Telegraph can reveal."

"The U.S. military has concluded its investigation into a video that appeared to show private security contractors shooting at civilian vehicles on highways in Iraq and determined that no one involved will be charged with a crime, a military spokesman in Baghdad said. The investigation, which officials have not released publicly, began after the video was posted on an Internet site purportedly run by employees of Aegis Defense Services, a London-based firm with a $293 million U.S. government security contract."

Video in wmp   Video in QT

i publish this video because it really shows how Iraqi are massacred. This kind of behavior and state of mind can only appear in a situation were killing iraqi is normal for westerners there, US army and contractors. Do not forget that occupiers are killing iraqi at a faster rate than Sadam did.

When the video first appeared I did a background diary on the orange one about Aegis Security and its links with people like Mark Thatcher, the Mad Handbagger's son.

Thanks for writing.
(I have chosen not to watch the video. Not sure I could take it.)
