Haditha Investigation Almost Complete; Marines Intentionally Killed Civilians

Fox News, no less, is reporting that military investigators are wrapping up their investigation into the civilian killings at Haditha, and the evidence points to deliberate murder of unarmed civilians by the Marines.

Evidence collected on the deaths of 24 Iraqis in Haditha supports accusations that U.S. Marines deliberately shot the civilians, including unarmed women and children, a Pentagon official said Wednesday.

Agents of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service have completed their initial work on the incident last November, but may be asked to probe further as Marine Corps and Navy prosecutors review the evidence and determine whether to recommend criminal charges, according to two Pentagon officials who discussed the matter on condition of anonymity.
