NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK STREET ART: MY MONTH WITH BANKSY ~ “CRAZY HORSES ATTACK!”

The accompanying audio—which is not on his 1-800 number yet, but is on his website—comes from the audio recording of an attack on Iraqi civilians in Baghdad in 2007 that was given by Chelsea Manning to Wikileaks. The callsigns of the two Apache helicopters involved in the attack were “Crazyhorse 1/8” and “Crazyhorse 1/9.” At least 12 people were killed in the attack, including two journalists working for Reuters, and 2 children were wounded. One of the American soldiers involved can be heard remarking, “Well, it’s their fault for bringing kids into a battle.”
