‘We’re in Jail, Dude’

Via BBC via Murdoch’s Sun a British tabloid. Surprising how long it took for this to break, but ol’ Rupes is just that kind of player.

The Sun newspaper says it has obtained the cockpit video at the centre of a row over the “friendly-fire” death of a British soldier in Iraq.

An inquest into the death of Lance Corporal of Horse Matty Hull, 25, from Berks, was adjourned after the coroner said the tape was central to the case.

The MoD said it was classified “secret” by the US, so could not be released.

The Sun says the video shows US aircraft attacking a British convoy in Basra, southern Iraq, in March 2003.

The video is … weird.

Reuters’ take is here.

YouTube’d video after jump.
