With the dismissal of charges against LTC Jeffrey Chessani, six of the seven Marines charged in the so-called Haditha Massacre been acquitted or had all charges dropped. Charges remain against one Marine, who is awaiting trial.
Just for the record:

LTC Jeffrey Chessani: All charges dismissed
LT Andrew Grayson: Acquitted on all charges
Lance Cpl. Stephen Tatum: All charges dismissed
CPT Lucas McConnell: All charges dismissed
Lance Cpl. Justin Sharratt: All charges dismissed
SGT Sanick Dela Cruz: All charges dismissed
SGT Frank Wuterich: Awaiting trial


The record of their accusers in the media and political world is less than stellar:

Keith Olbermann: “willful targeted brutality.”
The Nation: “Enough details have emerged . . . to conclude that . . . members of the 3rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment perpetrated a massacre.” and “a willful, targeted brutality designed to send a message to Iraqis.”
The New York Times wrote over 30 stories on what the paper called the “defining atrocity” of the Iraq war
The Guardian: “My Lai on the Euphrates?”
The London Telegraph: “Massacre in Iraq just like My Lai”
The Los Angeles Times: “What happened at the Iraqi My Lai?”
Maureen Dowd: “My Lai acid flashback."

The list is as apalling as it is endless, but even this pales before the judgement of someone who should have known better:

Rep. John Murtha: “Our troops overreacted because of the pressure on them, and they killed innocent civilians in cold blood.”


The Marines at Haditha have nothing to be ashamed of. The media and politicians who rushed to find them guilty without facts cannot say the same.
