Haditha Update

Stars & Stripes reports that the initial investigation into the alleged massacre of innocent civilians by U.S. Marines is coming to an end. The report apparently supports the initial charges against the Marines. However, the investigation is continuing and no charges have been filed. Another phase of the investigation will look into the possibility that Marine Officers tried to cover up the incident.

Rep. John Murtha, D.-Pa., accused the Marines of cold-blooded murder in a statement on May 17th, and at least one of the Marines is firing back with a lawsuit. The lawsuit, filed against Murtha, alleges that he made false and defamatory statements against SSgt. Frank Wuterich when he accused him of murder and war crimes. The lawsuit seeks damages of not less than $75,000.00. Yahoo! News story.

This one is far from over.
