The Dallas Mavericks’ owner, billionaire Mark Cuban, financed and distributed Redacted, the 2007 Brian De Palma film that depicted US troops raping and killing civilians in Afghanistan.

According to John Rosenthal, clips from Redacted have been regularly used in the German media as if it documents actual US war crimes — when it doesn’t. It’s fiction. And those clips may have inspire Arif Uka, the Islamic radical who murdered two US airmen in Frankfurt and wounded two others in a jihadist attack last week.

Whether Redacted inspired the Frankfurt terrorist or not, there’s no doubt that Cuban financed that film, and there’s no doubt that it was intended to present a very negative image of American troops.

Cuban’s infrequently updated blog is here.
