Marine Charged in Haditha "Massacre"

Reuters is reporting that Staff Sgt. Frank Wuterich has been charged with 13 counts of murder for his possible role in killing unarmed Iraqis last year in Haditha, Iraq.

"Wuterich led a squad at the center of the probe into the November 19, 2005, shooting of 24 unarmed men, women and children in the western Iraqi town. It is one of a series of cases in which U.S. service members have been accused, and in some cases convicted, of involvement in killing civilians."


Looks like the right-wingers owe the ever prescient John Murtha an apology.
