Surviving “Collateral Murder”: Solder relives infamous WikiLeaks video

April 9, 2013



From the YouTube description: “Friday marks the third anniversary of the release of the Collateral Murder video. In it, viewers witness an Apache Helicopter raining down fire on Iraqi civilians, killing all but two. We’ve heard the criticism from the public after the video was released.

We’ve seen the government conduct a worldwide manhunt to find the people responsible for leaking the video. Now, RT Correspondent Meghan Lopez sits down with one of the soldiers featured in the video, army veteran Ethan Mccord, as he describes the scene that day, the PTSD he now suffers from and his two suicide attempts.”
