The Latest Attempt to Smear our Soldiers Falls Flat
The mainstream enemedia is crying big fat tears tonight... What they hoped would be part 2 of a trifecta of "cold-blooded murders" of innocent civilians in Iraq, turned out to be a non-issue...
"The investigation of the March 15 attack in Ishaqi concluded that the U.S. troops followed normal procedures in raising the level of force as they came under attack upon approaching a building where they believed an al-Qaida terrorist was hiding, said Maj. Gen. William Caldwell, a U.S military spokesman."
"Caldwell also acknowledged there were "possibly up to nine collateral deaths" in addition to the four Iraqi deaths that the military announced at the time of the raid. The results of the investigation were released after questions were raised about the original U.S. report as television stations aired AP Television News footage of a row of dead children in the aftermath of the raid."
Expect to see this buried on the back page of every major newspaper and sandwiched in with exploding cars and Iraqi funeral processions on the TV news. Damn that Karl Rove! How did he make this one go away?
