Soldier seen in WikiLeaks.org video to speak tonight

Wikileaks videoEthan McCord, a soldier from Wichita, was one of first troops to arrive on the scene of a deadly air strike in Baghdad in 2007. The attack by two Apache helicopters killed 12 people, including a Reuters photographer and his driver. Video of the attack, released by WikiLeaks.org, has been viewed more than 7 million times.

McCord will be at Wichita’s Central Library at 7 p.m. tonight to take questions after a viewing of a 20-minute video presentation including the WikiLeaks.org’s “Collateral Murder” video and McCord’s public response. Wichita’s Peace and Social Justice Center organized the presentation.
