Hartmann: Raed Jarrar - Wikileaks war crime, reported in Iraq, not the US

Well... more abject horror pertpetrated by thugs in our name. It is getting to be hard to stomach, knowing that there are many, many more of these that escape notice. Utterly repulsive. The sad thing is that I am not even surprised that this took place. This is what my country has become... and I loathe that fact no end... When will we the people simply make it stop? Ever? Huh?

Raed Jarrar, Iraqi-American blogger and political analyst joins Thom Hartmann.

So much for shock and awe - a new Wikileaks release details shock and horror in Iraq. One of the latest leaked state department cables - alleges that back during Bush’s presidency in 2006 - U.S. troops executed at least 10 Iraqi civilians - including 5 children - and 4 women - and then called in an airstrike to destroy the evidence. 

At the time - Bush’s military officials denied the incident. But as this Wikileaks release shows - a U.N. special investigator uncovered evidence to the contrary, noting that morgue reports showed that all victims were handcuffed and shot in the head execution style.
