How Al Qaeda Used the U.S. Media at Haditha
Anti-war U.S. Rep. John Murtha, among others, had claimed the Marines had killed 21 civilians "in cold blood" in retalitation for the death of a fellow soldier.
The media compared it to the My Lai massacre in Vietnam.
Turns out it was an al Qaeda planned operation from the get go.
So far, four of the Marines brought up on charges have been exonerated.
Apologies to the slandered Marines from Murtha, the New York Times et al. have yet to be forthcoming.
