Iraq: The Falluja Mosque Killing


The Video

Media Reports



Background - Falluja, November 13th, 2004


“[…] I see an old man in a red kaffiyeh lying against the back wall. Another is face down next to him, his hand on the old man’s lap - as if he were trying to take cover. I squat beside them, inches away and begin to videotape them. […]


“While I continue to tape, a marine walks up to the other two bodies about 15 feet away, but also lying against the same back wall. Then I hear him say this about one of the men: ‘He’s fucking faking he’s dead - he’s faking he’s fucking dead.’ Through my viewfinder I can see him raise the muzzle of his rifle in the direction of the wounded Iraqi. There are no sudden movements, no reaching or lunging. […] Instead, he pulls the trigger. There is a small splatter against the back wall and the man’s leg slumps down. ‘Well he's dead now,’ says another marine in the background. […]”
