Re: The USA wants Assange for what he did

You do know that two RPG launchers were found with the bodies, and RPGs _are_ visible in the video, but hard for a non-expert to recognize, right?

The "sadly" refers to the the fact that a decision was made to attack based on faulty evidence that the RPGs were about to be used. The Apache pilots saw what was (probably) a lens poking round the corner, assumed it was an RPG, and asked for / received permission to attack.

But the RPGs and AK's were there.
