“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.
