Yesterday when I reported on the leak of the video footage, for some reason I attached the edited video rather than the full one. The edited video is more of a “highlights reel”.
Here is the full 40 minute unedited video:
I stayed out of the discussion on the previous post, and I’m going to do the same on this one. I have no experience flying Apache helicopters, and no experience as a soldier, so anything I would write about this incident would be useless, and purely opinion based on my impression watching the video from a comfortable leather chair while sipping in iced tea.
Some documents released yesterday under the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) relating to the incident:
- Action By Appointing Authority
- Sworn Statements
- Attack Mission Request
- 1st Air Calvary Brigade AR 15-6 Investigation
- 2nd Brigade Combat Team 15-6 Investigation
Some pictures emailed to me which some of you might find humorous:
