CNN Reporter Embedded with Marines Shocked by Massacre Allegations

Here is an interesting piece by CNN reporter Arwa Damon; she was embedded with the Marines in western al Anbar Province, the home to Haditha. Haditha is the town that a company of Marines is alleged (in the press) to have massacred Iraqi civilians last November. Congressman Murtha (D.-PA) has all but convicted these unknown Marines in the press but Ms. Damon describes herself as shocked at the allegations. In the article she describes the incredible lengths that the Marines went to in order to avoid harming civilians, including while conducting the type of door to door searching that seems to be involved in the massacre allegations. The article should be read by anybody interested in the use of force by our soldiers; and it is a must read for Congressman Murtha.
