U.S. Military Cannot Find Its Video to Authenticate Leaked Video
A spokesman for U.S. Central Command says the U.S. military cannot find its copy of a video showing two Reuters news agency employees being killed by Army helicopters in 2007. A leaked version of the video circulated the Internet and was posted on Wikileaks.org on the "collateralmurder.com" site.
The video includes audio of troops calling to "light 'em up!" and referring to the men as "dead bastards." An internal investigation concluded the troops acted appropriately, despite mistaking the camera equipment for weapons.
