Women and children had their hands tied behind their back and were shot in the head in house raid, which was covered up by the military

As revealed by a State Department diplomatic cable released by WikiLeaks last week, US forces committed a heinous war crime during a house raid in Iraq in 2006, wherein one man, four women, two children, and three infants were summarily executed.”

Infants. Executed. And Dick Cheney doesn’t think the war hurt our reputation. How about now?

The only person who will be punished for this is Bradley Manning. He won’t be punished for executing civilians, mind you, but rather for informing the public of the executions. 

just thought I’d point out that this means Condaleeza Rice knew about this incident… Anyone even pretending she’d ever face any consequences?
