Haditha

Were the killings in Haditha symbolic of U.S. troops' view of the worth of lives of Iraqis? This story isn't encouraging.

Marine commanders in Iraq learned within two days of the killings in Haditha last November that Iraqi civilians had died from gunfire, not a roadside bomb as initially reported, but the officers involved saw no reason to investigate further, according to a senior Marine officer.
