there are more new videos emerging from the head cams of iraqi helo pilots blowing up the stragglers who tried to break out.
I note that ABC news and the like have "amended" their articles ... but of course only after the damage has been done and iraqis even begun mockingly to post videos of US raids in Syria and deliberately lying and calling them Iraqi raids to illustrate the point.

Iraq Army Cleans Out Pockets of Islamist Insurgency North of Ramadi
Iraqi police and armed forces have eliminated two pockets of Islamist resistance north of Ramadi in the western Anbar province, an operations commander said Friday.
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Maj. Gen. Ismail Mahlawi, in charge of Anbar operations, told the local Alsumaria television that Iraqi security forces and anti-terror units killed many Daesh fighters with international air support.
Iraqi troops launched a large-scale offensive against Daesh militants last summer. In December 2015, they drove Islamists out of the Anbar provincial capital Ramadi, in preparation for the operation to recapture Daesh stronghold Fallujah.
Daesh is a designated terrorist group that is outlawed in the United States, Russia and numerous other countries worldwide.
Iraqi Air Force Kills 19 Daesh Commanders in Mosul
The Iraqi Air Force on Saturday killed 19 commanders of the Daesh terrorist group in the northern country's city of Mosul, the Iraqi Army’s information bureau said in a statement obtained by Sputnik.
CAIRO (Sputnik) — Mosul, the second largest city in Iraq and with a population of 500,000 people, has been controlled by Daesh for two years. Iraqi forces backed by Kurdish Peshmerga militia are currently preparing an assault on Mosul.
"Air Force fighter jets carried airstrikes against the [Daesh] group's headquarters in Mosul's al-Misaq quarter, when there were high-ranking commanders of the group. As a result of a successful airstrike all the militants in the number of 19 in the headquarters were killed," the statement said.
The Middle Eastern countries, notably Syria and Iraq, are struggling with jihadists, such as the Daesh outlawed in Russia and the United States among others.
Iraqi air forces dropped early Sunday thousands leaflets over the northern Iraqi city of Mosul warning civilians of the forthcoming offensive aimed at liberation the city from the Daesh terrorists, according to media reports.
Turkey is planning to join a US-backed offensive to liberate Iraqi city of Mosul from Islamic State terrorists, but has action plan 'B' if not allowed to be involved, President President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Friday.
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Mosul has been under control of Daesh since 2014, and remains their main stronghold. The US-led coalition of more than 60 nations has been conducting airstrikes against Daesh in Iraq since then.
"We are determined to take part in an operation by coalition forces in Iraq. If they [the US-led coalition] do not want Turkey's involvement, a Plan B or Plan C will be implemented," Erdogan said addressing participants of a rally in the city of Konya.
