Song about Marine killing Iraqis draws ire
Video appears to show GI singing about gunning down family in ‘Hadji Girl’
There is a sad, pathetic, and pitiful segment of the US population that will simply believe any accusations of atrocity made against our troops are true.
No doubt, if you ask them, they’ll claim to “support the troops but not the war”.
UPDATE: Murdoc was “ahead of the news cycle” on this one in a way. I called it a “hoax”, thinking that it was probably not a real GI in the video, without watching the video first. I was on my way out of work and didn’t have time.
Here’s a bit of a spoiler if you haven’t listened:
Then the Marine “guns down” the family. “Family”, in this case, being the ‘Hadji Girl’s’ father and brother. The ones shooting at him with AK-47s.
Why isn’t any of that mentioned in the AP/MSNBC.com article?
Because THEY ARE LYING TO YOU.
They think YOU ARE STUPID and WON’T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.
And we don’t even know for sure whether this is a real Marine. Were I a betting man, I’d say it is.
