Winter soldier video

So far, not all of the Winter Soldier videos have been posted on their website (see here), but one in particular has relevance to the war in Afghanistan:

James Gilligan testimony (video)
Gilligan describes a patrol he was on in Afghanistan in 2004 which came under insurgent fire. He called in erroneous coordinates for a defensive air strike, resulting in repeated air strikes on a village.

Gilligan also recounts an incident, again in 2004, when he witnessed a Huey gunship open fire on fleeing, unarmed Afghans who had been slated for arrest.
