Propaganda video, by Apache Commander, in response to 'Collateral Murder' Video
U.S. Army Commander Fires Back at Collateral Murder WikiLeaks Video





A couple of thoughts on this video:

This misleading video was posted on Youtube, apparently for propaganda purposes, on October 18, 2013.

The speaker, predictably sitting in front of an American flag, is former Lieutenant Commander Walach.

This video was posted at roughly the same time as an interview Walach provided to Military Times and Army Times, apparently designed as some two-pronged attack on Wikileaks. Based on information he provided in his interview, the purpose of the video is to discredit the 'Collateral Murder' video, specifically at this time as it is being presented again in the film 'The Fifth Estate'.

Here is a link to the 'Army Times' article and a critique of his comments:

The first thing that jumps out at the viewer is Walach's attempt to connect the 9/11 attacks with the invasion of Iraq. He uses emotive references to victims to create an inference that the Iraqi civilians deserved to be killed due to 9/11.

It is well-known that Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11, though the Bush Administration had used the attack as an opportunity to drum up support for the invasion, which had already been planned before 9/11.

Walach is either being completely disingenuous about this fact or is incredibly uneducated if he fails to understand this.
