U.S. Helicopter Strike Blasts an Afghan Man to Pieces… As The Pilot Sings 'Bye, Bye Miss American Pie'

By Daniel Bates

July 06, 2012 —- It is the horrific moment an Afghan man is blown apart by a US missile.

But in a moment of twisted inspiration an American helicopter pilot decided to give it a impromptu soundtrack – by singing ‘Bye, bye Miss American pie.’

He belted out the most famous line of the Don McLean classic at the moment of impact when a fireball consumed at least one man.

Explosion

Explosion: The missile hit was recorded on camera, along with the pilot's cheerful rendition of American Pie'

Targets

Targets: The two white subjects in the middle of the road are the Afghan killed by the attack helicopter. The video's poster claims they were farmers, but there is nothing to substantiate this

The video on LiveLeak.com appears to be from an on-board camera of a pilot from the 101st Airborne Division in an AH64 Apache helicopter.

According to the caption the victims were ‘innocent farms planting poppy seeds in the middle of the road,’ although that has not been verified.

The weapon used on them was supposedly a one kilogram Hellfire missile.

The caption reads: ‘At the 01:39 mark you can hear the pilot singing ‘Bye Bye Ms. American Pie’ right before impact then BOOM….the rest is history.’

Another pilot can also be heard saying, ‘Nice’ moments after the impact.

Follow-up shots

Follow-up shots: The pilot uses his helicopter's machine gun to try to kill two people who walked into the road to investigate the explosion, but the bullets miss

Two other men can then be seen running for their lives as the pilots shoot at them but miss.

The reaction on LiveLeak was one of disgust and Ozzieabroad wrote: ‘It’s disturbing and bordering on sanctioned psychopathy to enjoy killing so much’.

Based at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, the 101st Airborne Division became famous for their courage in World War II, the Vietnam War and the first Gulf War.

Its pilots are among the most dedicated and decorated in the US military.

The footage is the latest clip to emerge on LiveLeak which will prove embarrassing to top brass.

In January footage emerged on the website which showed four American soldiers urinating on dead bodies in what appeared to be Afghanistan.

The Marine Corps began an official investigation over the clip in which one of the men can be heard saying: ‘Have a great day, buddy’ to laughter from his colleagues.

Another of them joked, ‘Golden like a shower’ and said ‘Yeahhhh!’ as they groaned with relief whilst urinating.

The reputation of America’s military has also still not fully recovered from the Abu Ghraib abuse scandal in Baghdad.

Then there was the ‘Thrill Kill’ squad which murdered three Afghan civilians for sport and took their body parts as trophies.

MailOnline has reached out to the US military for comment.

      Murderous butcher Albright to receive award
      01.05.2012
      For the annals of, "You Could Not Make It Up," Ms. Albright's current positions include being Co-Chair of the United Nations Development Programme's Commission for Legal Empowerment of the poor, which "works to make real improvements in people's lives (fostering) economic growth, poverty reduction, human development and making the "law work for everyone."

      In September 2006, she received Menschen in Europe Award for furthering the cause of international understanding.  Orwell strikes again.

      On the 26th of April, announcing the thirteen recipients of the 2012 Presidential Medal of Freedom Award, President Obama commended Madeleine Albright for her efforts to bring peace to the Middle East …. reduce the spread of nuclear weapons, and for her role as a longtime champion of democracy and human rights all over the world. (i)

      "These extraordinary honorees (have) challenged us … inspired us, and they've made the world a better place," said the President.  The Medal honours those who have significantly contributed to world peace.

      Reading this "Adventures of a Heroine" fantasy story, the memories of the Iraqi mothers I have held, their tears mingling with mine, or dampening my shoulder as they watched helplessly as their children faded away in front of us for want of medications, denied by Albright's country and the UN she served, flooded back.
      The funerals, with the litany of coffins, so small, the impossibly little grave sites beyond counting, throughout Iraq, are witness to unique wickedness.

      One cynical blogger was so incensed that the header read, "Genocidal war criminal wins Presidential Medal whilst invoking Holocaust memories." (ii.)

      But Madam Albright is right on one thing. There is indeed "a special place in hell for women who don't help other women." Her award may yet haunt her to become the ultimate poisoned chalice. Here's hoping.

    The Great Tribulation is doing it right now and it is Apocalypse chapter 9 only that it is not Locusts but something far more evil and sinister…
    It is beings that are part of 'mother nature' and have existed for roughly around 400 000 000 years. Use discernment (clue: they procuce venom and are not flesh…)

    sorry I meant to say 'produce' not 'procuce' and I'm not joking… It is real.
