Peter Hilger's "The War You Don't See" (Video)

This remarkable documentary by John Pilger opens with video of an unreported U.S. helicopter gunship attack on unarmed Iraqi captives, and continues with other still and video photography of images from the U.S. wars (and past wars) that you don't see on American news networks or newspapers, and certainly not in U.S. history books. I highly recommend this extraordinary work by one of the finest journalists at work in the world today.

From the YouTube introduction:
From the award-winning director of The War on Democracy comes John Pilger's latest work, The War You Don't See. This hard-hitting exposé and scrutinizes the effects of the media during wartime, asking what is the role of the media in rapacious wars.

When symbols are separated from facts and the facts don't matter, could the media be accused of conspiring to play down the carnage and of using 'embedded journalism' to amplify the lies? This documentary unveils the war you don't see and allows you to make up your own mind.
