Bye-Bye Miss American Pie

by Abby Zimet

A video from September 2009 has surfaced via liveleak.com showing a 101st Airbornehelicopter crew in Wardack province singing "Bye-bye Miss American Pie" before blasting a group of Afghan men, who may or may not be doing anything illegal, with a Hellfire missile, after which survivors run for cover. Most chilling: The blithely admiring "Nice!" after the hit.

"Any impression of impropriety on the video is not representative of the professional service members who make up the (NATO) coalition." - Martin Crighton, spokesman for Nato-led forces in Afghanistan.
