The Iraq Killing Fields – the untold genocide: US War Crimes Tribunal investigation #8

War Criminals

First the US Government claimed there was no official tally of civilian deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan, but the Iraq and Afghanistan War Logs – as published by Wikileaks and based on evidence provided by Bradley Manning – showed this claim to be patently false. Thanks to Manning, Wikileaks and Wikileaks’ partners, the world did eventually see the figures. But these figures were largely based on US military counts.

First the US Government claimed there was no official tally of civilian deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan, but the Iraq and Afghanistan War Logs – as published by Wikileaks and based on evidence provided by Bradley Manning – showed this claim to be patently false. Thanks to Manning, Wikileaks and Wikileaks’ partners, the world did eventually see the figures. But these figures were largely based on US military counts. Other evidence, which is provided below, showed that they possibly provided a gross under-estimation of the true numbers of casualties. A respected British medical journal published a different set of figures, indicating not just thousands of Iraqi casualties, but closer to a million – a genocide in both name and fact, that is only now becoming apparent. In honour of Manning and Wikileaks – both Bradley Manning and Julian Assange have risked their liberty to reveal what they knew to the world – we present the untold story of the Iraq Killing Fields.

Note, the above video was aired by Channel 4 and is based on investigations into Iraq War deaths using material analysed by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism in partnership with Wikileaks and which, in turn, is gleaned from information provided by whistleblower Bradley Manning (currently facing a possible life sentence for revealing war crimes). This must-watch video not only examines the actual numbers of those killed, but the proportion of civilians, how deaths occurred, as well as the use of unorthodox methods by US military, including torture.

You Americans out there, I hope you realize most of you are accessories after the fact. Sleep well fuckers.
