Jessie Macbeth, a Former Army Ranger and Iraq War Veteran Tells All

This 20 minute interview will change how you view the U.S. occupation of Iraq forever. I cannot possibly recommend this more highly. An Iraq war veteran tells of atrocities he and other fellow-soldiers committed reguarly while in Iraq. I have never seen this level of honesty from a U.S. soldier who directly participated in the slaughtering of Iraqis.


"When we were doing the night raids in the houses, we would pull people out and have them all on their knees and zip-tied. We would ask the man of the house questions. If he didn't answer the way we liked, we would shoot his youngest kid in the head. We would keep going, this was our interrogation. He could be innocent. He could be just an average Joe trying to support his family. If he didn't give us a satisfactory answer, we'd start killing off his family until he told us something. If he didn't know anything, I guess he was SOL."


"For not speaking out, I feel like I'm betraying my battle-buddies that died."

NB: the current controversy around Jesse MacBeth and this video has a strong whiff of CIA disinformation about it, ie. the intention being to discredit the anti-war movement for supporting what turns out to be a fraud.

The Irak Veterans against War are investigating the affair and I will report its findings in this blog.

Whatever the truth is, there is no question that innumerable atrocities have been committed by the occupiers against Iraqi civilians, at least some of these documented by the World Tribunal on Iraq and brave reporters like Dahr Jamail.

As well as this, the attack and invasion of Iraq is a war crime where, to date, its perpetrators have not faced trial.
