Haditha is Meaningless

The blogosphere is going on about the events in the Iraqi town of Haditha. Supposedly some Marines committed some alleged atrocities and supposedly killed 24 "innocent" civilians. This happened after a member of the Marines unit was killed by a roadside bomb. Everyone is convinced of the Marines guilt even though the investigation is still on going. I am sorry if I don't feel sympathy for those killed. One of our guys was killed. Haditha is a terrorist stronghold and everyone in there is suspect. I want to know what these "people" did. I'm sure they brought it on themselves. No retaliation is enough when one of our guys is killed. Those who are harping on this, like senile John Murtha, are hurting our efforts and they should be ashamed.
