Haditha: The Accused Speak

Read an account from a sergeant who led a squad of Marines during the incident in Haditha, Iraq in this Washington Post article.

There is also an interesting read over at The American Thinker (here's a link to Sweetness & Light) and another at Newsmax.

Greyhawk at The Mudville Gazette has a great post covering the other side of this story.

I can't hold my fire about this, if there are any individuals that deserve the benefit of the doubt, it's our troops fighting in Iraq. It seems that the Marines accused of the incident in Haditha have not been given that privilege. Some are determined to declare these Marines guilty without the conclusion of any official investigation. As The Post story establishes, however, this is hardly an open-and-shut case: the differing accounts of what happened in Haditha--from the Marines' to the Iraqis' to the various press reports--only further complicate what the public "knows" about this incident. It's unfortunate that some are not willing consider the details that contradict their agenda.

I hope theTRUTH does come out soon...

It seems clear that the truth of the matter is proving more elusive than the anti-war left will admit. I too hope that the truth will come out soon and I'm rooting that the Marines will be exonerated.

The problem in this country is that instead of being innocent until proven guilty, here you are guilty until proven innocent, thanks to the media and public opinion.

Go marines, hoorah!!

All you have to do is look at the Duke Rape case and how the media immediately accused these guys of guilt. That case is crumbling apart as we speak. All of our troops are AWESOME!!! Thanks so much for your sacrifice and service to keep us safe!!
