    As much as I find all today's journalism, i.e. we try people in the press and not in a court of law.. the pentagon admitted the video was authentic. Not sure how they define authentic, either that the video was actual footage or the innocents were killed.

    It is comparable to the Breitbard/O'Keefe highly edited videos, that many believed...

    Reminds me of the naked girl running down the street in Viet Nam, after her home was bombed... unfortunately for the victims, that type of press can mobilize folks into action... it is the collateral damage thing.
