Retired Masters Sergeant and coordinating committee member of "Bring Them Home Now", Stan Goff comments: "The 'tell' is in the audio. When the pilot asks permission to fire, he reports a large number of people... not armed people. People. And permission is granted instantly. This is an indication that the mission guidance is to shoot anyone who is in the street. This is a clear war crime, and one that begins with the commander's stated intent in the operations order. The pilot's exclamation of satisfaction, 'Aw dude!' at the end just underlines how this casual sadism comes to dominate the psyches of those who are part of a military occupation force, and how the ground reality become 'race war.'"
