The Fallujah Shooting

Spike published an incredible video.

When former MSNBC and CNN war correspondent and blogger Kevin Sites videotaped a U.S. Marine shooting and killing an injured, unarmed Iraqi insurgent in a Fallujah mosque, he unleashed a maelstrom of international controversy over the U.S. treatment of Iraqi civilians and combatants. Here is his original footage as well as a military official's response to the charge.

Isn't what the General said a little hard to believe? Isn't the very idea of unlawful use of force in a combat situation a little silly? Doesn't this kind of going-over-the-line violence part and parcel of combat activity?

I say the last one investigated and charged should be the Marine who did the deed. It's his superiors all the way up to the President as well as all the folks who support this immoral war who are responsible for this.

Some folks don't like to talk of shared responsibility, but there it is again.

What's your opinion? Please leave a comment.


  1. So now you want War Crimes charges for Obama?

    That was kind of a joke on your shared responsibility theme, but come to think of it, where are all the nuts that called for Bush to be charged with war crimes? Why haven't they been yelling for Obama's head?

  2. I'm beginning to hear some yelling for Obama's head from the Left. Not enough yet, but I think it's beginning.
