Iraq Veteran Ethan McCord Featured in New Documentary


“Incident In New Baghdad” Premiering at Tribeca Film Festival & Several Speaking Engagements

New York, NY -- Ethan McCord is a former member of U.S. Army 2-16, Bravo Company, the ground troops involved in the “Collateral Murder” video released by Wikileaks one year ago. Since then, he has become a whistleblower himself by declaring that the killing of civilians was “standard operating procedure” in Iraq, and is authorized by the highest levels of the U.S. military in all theatres of war. Ethan has been traveling with the “We Are Not Your Soldiers” (www.wearenotyoursoldiers.org) tour visiting high school classrooms educating students about the horrors of war and the lies presented by military recruiters.

Premiering on April 24th at the NYC Tribeca Film Festival “Incident In New Baghdad” http://www.tribecafilm.com/filmguide/incident_in_new_baghdad-film35204.html

recounts a US Army veteran’s personal experience in and out of the war zone and examines the events of that day in April 2007 when Reuters journalist Namir Noor-Eldeen, driver Saeed Chmagh, and several others as the Apache shoots and kills them in a public square in Eastern Baghdad.

Produced by independent filmmaker James Spione, whose first film “Prelude” earned a Student Academy Award from the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences.

Ethan will be speaking at two venues prior to the limited engagement of this new film and is available for television and radio engagements.
