The U.S. military has decided not to review or reinvestigate a 2007 American helicopter attack on a group of suspected insurgents in Baghdad. The attack killed 12, including two Reuters employees. U.S. Central Command says there were already two Army investigations back in 2007 that exonerated the helicopter crews. The investigation found that some of the men were carrying weapons. But NPR has learned that there was debate within the military about a specific part of the attack — the targeting of a van that came to the aid of the wounded. Michele Norris talks to NPR's Tom Bowman, who has the details.
