Dahr Jamail on Haditha Massacre

GUEST: Dahr Jamail, independent reporter

Anonymous sources from the Pentagon have told the Washington Post that they think the massacre of Iraqi civilians last November in Haditha was the result of a rampage by a small number of Marines. The Marines allegedly snapped after one of their own was killed by a roadside bomb. The Military had previously refused to believe Haditha residents when they accused Marines of murdering unarmed civilians, despite evidence unearthed by an investigative report in Time Magazine this March. Meanwhile, Congressman John Murtha appeared this Sunday on ABC’s “This Week, saying there was a “cover-up” and said the fallout could be “worse than Abu Ghraib.” So far, three commanders have been relieved of duty. A Senate panel will hold hearings to look into the incident.
