More on the gruesome video released today by WikiLeaks showing the slaughter from U.S. helicopters of seven Iraqi civilians in 2007. Appearing with two others on MSNBC's Dylan Ratigan Show, WikiLeaks' director Julian Assange and Salon's Glenn Greenwald agree this is, essentially, what we're doing in Iraq and Afghanistan. God knows, they add, how many times the scene, or another like it, has been repeated. We just don't see it.

 "Hahaha. I hit 'em...Oh yeah, look at those dead bastards." - U.S. helicopter crew members, after opening fire.
