One of Wikileaks most famous leaks, Collateral Murder, shows a U.S. apache helicopter purposefully aim, shoot, and kill a dozen men casually standing around on a street in Iraq. The deceased included two Reuters journalists. Two young children were also injured. Voices can be heard encouraging the helicopter to continue shooting and showing pride in the shootings. After the initial engagement a van showed up to help the wounded, which the helicopter then proceeded to fire upon as well. Ethan McCord was one of the soldiers on the ground responding to the scene. In other youtube videos, his retelling of the incident shows extreme disregard for human life.
