Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So, as some of you might be aware because there was a bit of a row about it a week or two ago, wikileaks apparently decrypted some video of soldiers knowingly shooting innocents in Iraq, which was subsequently covered up - folks who run wikileaks were claiming they were being followed by the FBI, among other things. At any rate, the video was released this morning.
WARNING - Video is unedited gun cam footage. There will be people dying in this video.
I have not watched it in its entirety myself. According to the various reddit threads, people who were trying to recover the bodies of people had been shot were also killed, among those who were shot were some Reuters employees.
Now, obviously in the discussion over there there's a lot of hyperbole and jumping to conclusions - I've not watched the aforementioned video in its entirety myself, nor do I know how wikileaks determined anyone in the video was a Reuters employee (or otherwise innocent, although the portion of the video I watched gave me flashbacks to the helicopter portion of Full Metal Jacket). Reuters themselves have nothing posted about it yet.
So the question is, assuming the accusations are accurate, what sort of action should be taken, and against what individuals/party? And how widespread and commonplace might situations like this be?
