PBS Frontline: What Really Happened in Haditha?

Haditha in my judgment is a metaphor for how the press unconsciously, being in opposition to the war, will take an incident and simply by reiterating it and reiterating it and reiterating it build it into something that it wasn’t.

Feb. 13: Marine Staff Sgt. Frank Wuterich, center, arrives for his motions hearing at Camp Pendleton, Calif. Wuterich is being charged for his alleged involvement in the death of Iraqi civilians in Haditha, Iraq in 2005. Mike Blake - Reuters

The program airs this Tuesday night. Bruce Kesler received an advanced copy, and gives a great review of the contents, here.

Curt has followed the story since its inception, and you can see his previous 41 blog entries here.

Great Read by the Democracy Project.

I hate the Media like MSNBC, The NYT and those rags that just want to turn something that probably happened a hundred times in WW2 into the most hurrendous incident of one war.

Doctor it, repeat it over and over again until someone believes our Military is not to be believed or to be made out to be monsters.

That surely explains Code Pink, on second thought nothing explains code pink nm.

We Americans are deluded into thinking we are running this country when in fact the Media is.

Robin from Chickenhawk Express also covered this topic extensively. I even interviewed her on my show about it and we talked about it for the whole hour.

This was a huge miscarriage of justice and I just hope PBS does it justice.
