Wuterich – ‘Shoot First, Ask Questions Later’


Gannon played excerpts from a 2007 CBS “60 Minutes” interview in which Wuterich told reporter Scott Pelley that he ordered his men to “shoot first and ask questions later” when they entered the first house November 19, 2005.
Wuterich said he had heard gunshots coming from the area of the houses.

“I didn’t want my Marines to check for weapons first; I told them what to do and they did a good job,” Wuterich said, adding: “I had to make sure than none of the rest of my guys died or got killed.”
Six people were killed in that house, most of them shot in the head, including women and children huddled in a bedroom.

Clip of dead-eyed maniac Wuterich making his excuses here. He was not alone in this type of incident or this type of mentality. He was just an unlucky one that got caught. He may still walk away if they come out with another ‘fog of war’ routine.
