America is going to be facing a tough period on the Hadith incident in Iraq. There is always the possibility in war things get out of control. After years of being attacked and seeing the brutality of the Islamo-fascists good people can crack and make tragic decisions. The one thing I want to say at this early juncture is this: don’t play demi-god like Murtha did. We don’t know the facts. We need to investigate this and do what is right. If, and this is a big if right now, something horrible was done by these US Marines then it was not in our name or with our blessing. And it doesn’t negate all the good and sacrifice done in Iraq by 100’s of thousands of others. This is a serious issue because a lot of apparently innocent people where killed. We will bring justice to this. And we should not let it taint anyone but those who lost control. This is the tough job we took on. We may have to face the fact some of us did a horrible thing. That doesn’t make us horrible. Unless of course we too throw away are system of justice and our principles and start rampantly speculating and rumor mongering. Details are coming when the time is right and the information is verified.
