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.
