Haditha: A Genuine Atrocity

OK, I've read enough before the investigation results come out. I'm going to join the chorus of those predicting them. Prediction: the massacre at Haditha was performed by TIME magazine, with aid from the AP and Reuters, which gleefully and deliberately lied their asses off and didn't bother to check any facts. Which, of course, means that the next time any of these tell me something that doesn't sound right, I'll just put it down as the words of a bunch of guys talking at a neighborhood bar, though my local tends to have people who know more than these reporters (that's Vegas for you -- anyone else have some favorite locals with reasonable people?)

notes here.

Now I'll sit back and wait for the official invstigation.
