Didn't follow any of the UCI stuff, and it dosent really interest me.
If it does go to trial I hope all the conflicting statements can get sorted out - that's what really bugged me about this.
Those outtakes would have been very interesting - I'm kind of torn on if they should be protected - don't see why we should only have access to the edited version. Gives the media too much power.

What it comes down to is whether they were following the orders given. “Civilian” casualties don’t bother me at all. From talking to soldiers who were there, there weren’t any civilians. Don’t trust them. Don’t tun your back on them. Things have changed, but at that place and time I think they did what they had to do. Initial reports seem to indicate this. Just another day at the races. And what happened wasn’t an overwhelming concern. To paraphrase a soldier who served with my nephew “If you look at every single incident, there would be a lot more prosecutions”. It was a nasty business. And the “truth” can be very subjective, IMO.
