Raed Jarrar, Iraqi-American blogger and political analyst joins Thom Hartmann. So much for shock and awe - a new Wikileaks release details shock and horror in Iraq. One of the latest leaked state department cables - alleges that back during Bush's presidency in 2006 - U.S. troops executed at least 10 Iraqi civilians - including 5 children - and 4 women - and then called in an airstrike to destroy the evidence. At the time - Bush's military officials denied the incident. But as this Wikileaks release shows - a U.N. special investigator uncovered evidence to the contrary, noting that morgue reports showed that all victims were handcuffed and shot in the head execution style. The investigator, Philip Alston, writes in the cable, "[U.S.] troops entered the house, handcuffed all residents and executed all of them. 

After the initial"intervention, a U.S. air raid ensued that destroyed the house." So why is that we have to rely on Wikileaks again to reveal to the American people the horrors of war? And just how widespread is this sort of gruesome behavior in our military operations in the Middle East?
