Sam Adams Associates for Integrity in Intelligence


Bradley Manning finally in court at Fort Meade, MD

For those willing to devote 12 minutes to watching/hearing first-hand how war brutalizes not only our Army’s targets but also our Army’s men and women, this is MUST SEE video cum commentary re July 12, 2007 Apache helicopter attack on Iraqi civilians in Baghdad during the celebrated “surge.”

Army’s Mafia Abuse of Pvt. Manning (3.4.11)

Whistleblower Jailed, Shooters Walk Free

Some may be familiar with “Panorama,” the oldest and most respected “60 Minutes”-type program on German TV.  Panorama did an excellent 16-min special, featuring Ethan McCord, others and Ray and key footage from the “collateral murder” original tape.  It aired in Germany (with dubbing into German) on Feb. 10. The program had unusually broad and intense resonance in Germany. Ray asked them if they could possibly undo the dubbing, and one of the producers did just that. So now it’s available to all who understand English. It is, we think, VERY good… and only about 12 minutes (minus the original introduction/commentary in German).

For those who understand German, the full-length program is even more compelling.  The URL for the GERMAN original is below:
