Yet another Marine has won a court victory in the investigation of the battle at Haditha â€“ adding more doubts to the claims of a massacre. In this case, the officer conducting an Article 32 hearing (equivalent to a grand jury hearing in civilian courts) has ruled that charges should be dropped. In essence, the claims of a massacre at Haditha are now looking false. That said, al Qaeda, through some adept media manipulation, has still won a victory.
Just because there was no Israeli massacre at Jenin does not mean many people in the Middle East and Berkeleystan think there was, or that Israel doesn’t suffer the strategic effects commensurate with such an act. It’s an information war, and truth doesn’t have to be at the root of a powerful assertion for it to have an effect.
By the way: Thanks, Congressman Murtha.
