Some men left behind

Haliburton contractors abandoned by military when their convoy gets attacked in Iraq. One contractor survives but sees two others being murdered. Meanwhile their National Guard cover abandons them and lets the rescue choppers come to their aid, 45 mins later. The guy videos it all. Watch as a bullet comes through his windscreen, not too far from his head.

It’s a tribute to the professional military rescuers who at least came back and got him out, but how insane or desperate for money do you have to be to drive in convoys over there?

  1. Is that the video shown on RTE 2 news last night? I only saw the intro before I went to bed but I remember feeling uneasy about it.

    It would make you think that they didn’t want americans there. 😉

    Maybe it would be better if we left them to their own future, or rather their own past, say the 16th century?

    Well America are an invading occupation so you can kind of see why they might be a little narky about the whole thing.

  4. […] Thanks to for this video. Shocking. […]

    Maybe the US should make their convoys capable of withstanding more than just the garlands of flowers they were expecting pre-invasion. Attacking supply lines is hardly a new military tactic.
