As John Murtha and others in government and media rushed to convict the Haditha Marines of an atrocity, many of us said wait for the evidence to be accumulated, and if charges are brought, the court martial to be conducted and verdicts rendered.
There has been very little restraint on the left, which seems eager to add Haditha to the same sentence as Abu Graib and Gitmo which introduces the argument that America has lost its way.
Now, at The American Thinker, Clarice Feldman has produced a first cut at a critique of the Haditha indictment circulating in the media. It seems to me that Murtha et al should read it closely and respond to it, and that MSM should provide coverage of these doubts especially if a particular paper or program has covered Haditha in a way that suggested or concluded the Marines were guilty of atrocities.
Again, no one in media knows whether the Marines are innocent of these charges or guilty, and fair reporting requires that critiques like Feldman’s be considered and reported upon widely.
