Full video: Deaths of Reuters journalists in Iraq

One of our most popular stories Monday was one about footage posted online that showed two photojournalists killed in a 2007 attack by a U.S. helicopter gunship in Iraq being rescued when the gunship's crew fired on the van to which he was being carried.

We now have the full 17 minute video that you can watch it below. The video contains graphic content and user discretion is advised.

    I am expecting to see a lot of right-wing nutjobs blog in here in order to defend those creeps who murdered those reporters and medics.Those creeps already proved beyond a reasonable doubt that they have little regard for the sanctity of human life and they should be brought to justice.

    I am sorry to disappoint you, but if you watch the video with detail, you will notice that there are two individuals who carry an AK-47 and an RPG, though trying to hide it from the helicopter's view. I am not talking about the Reuter's people, who obviously carry two cameras. I am talking about the people who escort the photographers.

    In fact, the individual who is carrying the RPG approaches the same corner where the photographer is manipulating his camera. Maybe the helicopter pilot mistook at first the camera for an RPG, but surely this saved his life.
