SO, tell me, useful idiots at the BBC--are those truthful, morality-filled terrorists (or, as you call them, groups "opposed to coalition forces") so beyond reproach to the point where they, themselves, would never have thought to take the people who were already killed by the blast and filling them full of AK-47 rounds?
The video pictures obtained by the BBC appear to contradict the US account of the events in Ishaqi, about 100km (60 miles) north of Baghdad, on 15 March 2006.
The US authorities said they were involved in a firefight after a tip-off that an al-Qaeda supporter was visiting the house.
According to the Americans, the building collapsed under heavy fire killing four people - a suspect, two women and a child.
But a report filed by Iraqi police accused US troops of rounding up and deliberately shooting 11 people in the house, including five children and four women, before blowing up the building.
The video tape obtained by the BBC shows a number of dead adults and children at the site with what our world affairs editor John Simpson says were clearly gunshot wounds.
The pictures came from a hardline Sunni group opposed to coalition forces. (READ: Terrorists)(surprise, surprise, surprise)
But of course, the BBC would never be so brash as to question the integrity of terrorists:
Translation: We saw the tape--it's a good propaganda piece--let's prop it up.
It has been cross-checked with other images taken at the time of events and is believed to be genuine, the BBC's Ian Pannell in Baghdad says.
I want to see ballistic evidence that it was done by U.S. soldiers. Until you show me that, I'll trust our soldiers, thank you.
