A 20-minute video that will change your life

"When we were doing the night raids in the houses, we would pull people out and have them all on their knees and zip-tied. We would ask the man of the house questions. If he didn't answer the way we liked, we would shoot his youngest kid in the head. We would keep going, this was our interrogation. He could be innocent. He could be just an average Joe trying to support his family. If he didn't give us a satisfactory answer, we'd start killing off his family until he told us something. If he didn't know anything, I guess he was SOL."
This is a MUST see.

These were my first thought upon watching this video:

I agree with some of the comments already posted. Much of his account requires corroboration before it can be believed. I also agree that he must be held accountable for these crimes, though his admission and remorse can be considered a mitigating factor during sentencing. Under no circumstance can he be allowed to go unpunished if what he says is true.

I cried listening to some of the things he said that he did, they were so atrocious. But, I also found it extremely hard to reconcile how someone who apparently has a conscience could commit these ice-coldblooded murders to begin with. Perhaps if he has an extremely low IQ, that MIGHT explain why he was able to do it. In that case, he may be excused as having acted out of mental defect. Something is just not right about this.

Another thing that I found suspicious is his account of the women and the men at the mosque praying together. Muslim men and women don't ordinarily pray together. But, it's possible that they made an exception because of the conditions of war.

This absolutely needs further investigation. Other soldiers from his platoon must be interviewed.

They're posted on the guestbook comments page, on the second to last page.

The video's gone. Cui Bono? Who benefits from running such a gruesome tale through someone who is known to be a liar?

Great way to desensitize people from the next gruesome tale, like Haditha.

The video's BACK! Thanks to our friends at www.nogw.com

MacBeth's story sounds a whole lot more credible after what happened to Abir and her family, and the poor Iraqis in Haditha.

The atrocities are endless.
