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
. . .
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?
