On April 5, 2010, WikiLeaks released a video called "Collateral Murder." The video presented an editorialized account of what has become one of the most infamous and controversial events in the war in Iraq: on July 12, 2007, two U.S. Army helicopters opened fire on a group of men in in the district of New Baghdad. Eight were killed, including two Reuters reporters; most were unarmed.
The Oscar-nominated documentary short "Incident in New Baghdad" recounts this event through the perspective of Ethan McCord, a former army specialist who can be seen in the video trying to save two children who have been injured by the gunfire. He has since become an anti-war activist.
McCord joins The Takeaway to discuss his experiences, and Jim Spione, the director of the documentary, talks about his film and the history behind it.
