The clip presented here is excerpted from ‘Motorcycle Kill,’ a video collected and shared by members of the “kill team” of U.S. soldiers who murdered civilians in Afghanistan and mutilated the corpses. The jumpy, 30-minute video – shot by soldiers believed to be with another battalion in the 5th Stryker Brigade – shows American troops gunning down two Afghans on a motorcycle who may have been armed. Even if the killings were part of a legitimate combat engagement, however, it is a clear violation of Army standards to share such footage. The video was taken on patrol with a helmet-mounted camera; at one point, the soldier shooting the images can be heard boasting, “I got it all on camera.”
I am still wondering why after two weeks of media coverage, Democrats are not calling for investigations of the “kill team.”
If it were a republican in office, this would be front page news. It would lead virtually every new cast across the country.
The media would go out on the street and ask people “what they think about this” questions in an attempt to gin up support for a full congressional inquiry into this “abuse of power” by an American president.
I guess when the media realized that they had helped to elect the dumbest human on earth into the highest office in the land, the also decided to ignore the fact that they helped elect the dumbest human on earth to the highest office in the land. JD
