Do you think the massacre in Haditha was something that only happened that one time?

No more than I believe that Abu Ghraib was the result of 'a few bad apples' or that My Lai was the only massacre that happened in Viet Nam.

This sort of thing is what happens in wars - it's part of the war mentality.

From above:
"Wuterich told his lawyer the shootings were the result of a sweep for enemies in a firefight, the Post reported. He was a member of a four-man team of Marines who entered the house, kicked in the door to a room and tossed a fragmentation grenade inside. One Marine fired clearing shots into the room, killing several people, Wuterich told his lawyer.

"They found men, women and children, most likely civilians, inside, but believed the insurgents had escaped to another house. They went to that house and used a grenade and gunfire to clear another room, killing more people, the Post account said."

Even by their own accounts, they just went in with grenades and guns - to 4 houses - without checking to see if there were civilians or sold

No, they're probably a common occurrence.

And I wonder how often this happens anywhere our troops are? They sure seem trigger happy.

I highly doubt it was the only one that ever happened. Sometimes I think the United States Military like to feel like they are in complete and total control so I think they do things like this to scare civilian's

For some reason I just don't believe this story...

Please don't go, Haditha mayor tells U.S. Marines
