Reason is never impartial. If someone considers their reason to be impartial, you can bet they’re buying into the reason of the dominant social, racial, gender, or political class.
There are none so blind as those who will not see…
Tumblr is stuffed silly with imbeciles who hold positions precisely because they are (perceived to be) the opposite of the Boogie Man de jour.
It’s one of the ways the elite control people. A great example is convincing you that any criticism over Obama and his handling of Banghazi/Egypt is a Teabagger conspiracy. The Teabaggers are behind it, you’re against the Teabaggers thus you reject any criticisms — you reject the very notion of “Scandal.”

Oops, sorry, for a moment there I thought I was in the second grade again…
Wait. You’re Catholic now? And a Muslim?
In any case, it’s funny that you’ve created for yourself a god that’s as racists as you…

You’re not wrong, but the idea that the US is in no way at fault is wrong. At the end of the day, they regularly torture who they suspect to be terrorists and dissenters. They do more or less shoot down and bomb innocent people without a care in the world (see: the video of the soldiers shooting civilians from a helicopter in Pakistan).
Everything isn’t always as it seems.
For example, if you saw footage, who on earth do you think took the footage? If for some reason you think it wasn’t the military itself, how did the photographer know what was going to happen?
…or do you actually think a military that was reading newspaper headlines from space never figured out that if you’re conducting war crimes then it’s a pretty good idea not to create evidence, and then release that evidence?
Everything happens for a reason. Everyone has an agenda, including the people you think are unbiasedly informing you about U.S. activities. Quite frankly, most of what the U.S. gets blamed for isn’t even the U.S. I can’t even find a source that doesn’t blame the U.S. for the coup which re-installed the Shah of Iran, for example, but it just didn’t happen that way. The British government did it. It was a British operation. But the British government takes a very active roll in “Refining” what information people receive.
To be honest, it wasn’t just dodging any responsibility for the coup, not in the case of Iran. They also wanted to scare of Stalin. Unless they convinced the world that it was a U.S. operation then Stalin would have sent the tanks rolling in. Stalin may have wanted to avoid direct military conflict with the United States, but he wouldn’t have hesitated to piss on the British.
When you see “Evidence” there are many facts which you are ignoring. The first is that someone created that “Evidence” for a reason. It was not created by accident. The second is that it’s existence served a purpose. If it didn’t it would have been destroyed (assuming it would have ever been created in the first place). The third is that whoever is showing you this “Evidence” has an agenda, and there’s absolutely no reason to believe that this agenda includes the accurate disclosure of the first two facts — why it was created, what purpose it served — let alone any of the circumstances.
I’ll discuss policy all you want — what should be done and why — but discussing video in a day & age when youtube is stuffed filled with convincing (amateur produced) special effects just plain isn’t revealing.
You want to discuss evidence, fine, but place that evidence within the context of policy. And, no, the U.S. government has no policy where it sends homicidal maniacs to Pakistan or anywhere else in order to engage in thrill kills.
Things happen for a reason. All things. And, not always for the reason you think.
