Michael Mair and colleagues’ offer a detailed analysis of a video clip that exhibits the interaction between pilots during who during the Iraq war became engaged in a friendly fire incident. The video that was publicized in the news media and on various newspapers’ websites also was at the center of a military inquiry. The authors’ analysis explicates how the video involves interpretive difficulties that render it problematic to use as evidence in the inquiry. From the analysis the authors derive some interesting insights about military practice and the role of friendly fire within it.
