UN fact finding mission finds that 5 Mavi Marmara activists were killed execution style.

Gareth Porter on the report:

“The report concluded that a US citizen, Furkan Dogan, a 19-year-old US citizen, and five Turkish citizens were deliberately murdered by Israeli commandos on board the Mavi Marmara, the ship that was taken over violently by the Israeli commandos. It really provided very specific evidence that both Furkan Dogan and the five Turkish citizens were in fact killed when they were incapacitated, unable to resist, were clearly not a threat to the Israeli commandos. So it’s really the clearest and most convincing evidence that has been published, and obviously from an official source, that this was an execution-style murder.”

Shows clearly that the US values its relationship with Israel over the lives of its own citizens. But since when has that been a surprise? USS Liberty, anyone?
