Haditha, Iraq's My Lai

The Washington Post has a very good article on the Haditha massacre of November 19, 2005. According to eyewitnesses, U.S. Marines shot 24 Iraqi civilians in retaliation for an IED attack that killed one of their colleagues. The article provides a detailed account of the incident itself and an overview of the ongoing investigations into the killings.

Comments

What happened at Haditha was horrible, and let's hope that finally some U.S. military personnel are held accountable for the atrocities they commit.

But let's also remember that the odds are against that. Only one person ever served time for the My Lai massacre, and he serrved a total of 3 1/2 years of house arrest.

Nobody has ever been charged for the 7 month spree of atrocities of Tiger Force.

See the Toledo Blade's series on the Tiger Force thing and pay attention to the chronology re Cheney and Rumsfeld. Sort of explains why they were so eager to neutralize the World Court’s jurisdiction with respect to U.S. forces. Remember also they were trying to get a pass on war crimes long before we invaded Iraq. They knew this was inevitable and they were planning for it. More competent management from the BushCo “adults’.
