The shooting Saturday was videotaped by pool correspondent Kevin Sites 
of NBC television, who said three other previously wounded prisoners in 
the mosque apparently also had been shot again by the Marines inside 
the mosque.
. . .

Sites' account said the wounded men, who he said were prisoners and who 
were hurt in the previous day's attack, had been shot again by the 
Marines on the Saturday visit.

The videotape showed two of the wounded men propped against the wall 
and Sites said they were bleeding to death. According his report, a 
third wounded man appeared already dead, while a fourth was severely 
wounded but breathing. The fifth was covered by a blanket but did not 
appear to have been shot again after the Marines returned. It was the 
fourth man who was shown being shot.

to the Associated Press by NBC News, a U.S. marine is seen, left, 
raising his rifle in the direction of Iraqi prisoners lying on the 
floor of a mosque in Fallujah, Iraq Saturday Nov. 13, 2004. The pool 
video was recorded Saturday as the Marines returned to an unidentified 
Fallujah mosque. The video, in a version aired by CNN showed the Marine 
raising his rifle toward the prisoners but neither NBC nor CNN showed 
the shooting itself. The video was blacked out but the report of the 
rifle could be heard. The bodies in the foreground are other Iraqi 
prisoners. (AP Photo/NBC News, Pool)


And as in Abu Ghraib, this is what is documented. How about the events 
that are not documented?

BTW, a few months ago the History Channel had a documentary on the WWII 
war in the Pacific. It documented letting 4,000 Japanese die in the 
water after their ship had been sunk. Almost as disturbing was the 
footage showing another incident where a lone Japanese sailor was 
asking to be rescued. He was shot and killed while in the water.

Do any of you recall seeing this documentary and its name?
