    This incident in Baghdad 2007, has become infamous after Wikileaks obtained the Apache helicopter footage and cockpit recordings. That's what you hear on this track, alongside the moving testimony of US soldier Ethan McCord. 12 civilians died including 2 Reuters staff; it's thought their cameras were mistaken for guns. The children were severely wounded when their father tried to evacuate the injured in his van. This isn't anti-American...it just shows how modern war dehumanises by making the whole grisly business of killing a remote operation. I've been looking for a musical way to present this material for some months and when I heard Cyra Morgan's incredibly beautiful lullaby I knew the search was over. I am so incredibly grateful to her for allowing me to use her music in this way. I also play low whistle, a type of Irish flute, and also real Irish bagpipe drones.
