Reuters Repeats Lie: US Troops Mistook Photographers For RPG Insurgents

Top headlines at liberal Yahoo.com... Reuters bitterly repeats the obvious like:

The U.S. military said an investigation shortly after the incident found that U.S. forces were unaware of the presence of news staff and thought they were engaging armed insurgents, mistaking a camera for a rocket-propelled grenade launcher.

The Associated Press also falsely reported that a US investigation found no RPG, only photography cameras, though Reuters had even admitted that "the military had released documents to Reuters last year in response to the FOIA request showing the presence of weapons on the scene, including AK-47 rifles and an RPG 7 grenade launcher."

Reuters now reports the opposite.

Wikileaks edited out clips from the video that reveal more evidence of weapons on the scene. The video clearly shows a man with an RPG in the group, aiming it toward ground troops.

Fox News reports that the military mistook the journalists for insurgents but makes some very important points:
WikiLeaks did not slow down the video to show that at least one man in that group was carrying a rocket-propelled grenade launcher, a clearly visible weapon that runs nearly two-thirds the length of his body.

WikiLeaks also did not point out that at least one man was carrying an AK-47 assault rifle. He is seen swinging the weapon below his waist while standing next to the man holding the RPG.
