In November 2003 an AC-130 strike near the Baghdad Airport flattened a civilian apartment complex. Soldiers gathered to watch the attack from a rooftop inside a nearby Army base. Some plan to testify about the incident, which they believe resulted in civilian deaths, at the upcoming "Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan" event in Washington; read Mark Benjamin's full story here.

Watch footage of the air strike shot by Steven Casey, who was a scout in a cavalry unit at the nearby Army base.
