Bravo Company 2-16 Infantry had been under fire in that area all morning, from rocket-propelled grenades and small arms which is why the apaches were called in. The journalists were amongst some of the opposition fighters, trying to get their side of the story. The apache counted the real weapons and the film equipment and reported that it looked like seven people had AK47's and asked permission to fire. The radio tells him that he could because there were no known friendlies in the area. When one of the camera men began to film the apache, the pilot said "we got a guy with an RPG, he`s going to fire!" They flew to the other side of the building and mowed them down, then the stuff with the news van happened. After the incident the news cameras were found but also 2 RPGS and 1 AK-47.

He did some real damage!

@furryblob: I saw the video, the helicopter gunner thought the news reporter had a RPG on his shoulder instead of a camera since it looked like it and he was surrounded by armed Al-Qaeda. I couldn't tell he was a reporter either when I watched after the first spray of cannon fire, the reporter was alive and the the gunner did want to kill him but didn`t because he didn`t yet pose a threat. Once the unmarked news van arrived and started pulling the cameraman in, the gunner described the situation to the control room and they gave him permission to fire. No one knew there were children inside the van, they were hit along with the two newsagents. It was very unfortunate and I didn`t like seeing it, but I didn`t see any break in the rules of engagement, the helicopters were there to kill not observe. It is war, and sometimes its had to tell film equipment from ak-47`s.

I hate this guy, he had been fired from his other jobs because "he would simply sit and stare." He only joined the military because he was forced out of his house when he attacked his stepmother with a knife because she told him to get another job.

This guy released everything without regard for whether is was good or bad, with most being neutral. People forget that he forced people like Argaw Ashine into hiding for having sources who knew how the Ethiopian Gov. was corrupt. Two of our contacts in Zimbabwe were leaked and were arrested. It also lead to a persecution of Hindus in Pakistan. And some of China's top academics and human rights activists along with Tibetan and Uighur activists were arrested as having given information to the US and might even be killed. And now its hard for anyone in China who talks about reforming the country`s authoritarian political system to not be painted as "American agents." He did s

"Why does it seem like the commenters here who are most afraid of big government are so quick to condemn a guy who let the public know some of the seedy things that government is doing?"

Bears repeating.
