US military: “case closed”

by Larry Geller

This Tweet Just In:


U.S. military plans no further review of helicopter strike in Baghdad that killed civilians in July 2007, considers case closed - NBC News

Let’s see… the YouTube video is at about 4,216,000 views and climbing, so no, the case isn’t closed yet. In the absence of US action, the video has the last word.

Update: While typing the above, four five sequential tweets came in from Jeremy Scahill:


Eyewitness to attack told @bignoisefilms day after attack: "we demand that Congress & Bush supervise soldiers' actions."
