The Marine Massacre at Haditha, Iraq. How will history judge this event in the annals of time?
The Military, especially the US Army has within its War College something called,”Lesions Learned”.
These are to teach the young officer, and sometimes the NCOs about the mistakes of the past and to insure that history does not repeat itself! Well, at this point in history, it would seem that the purpose of lesions learned have done nothing short of fail!
Within the Army Times we begin to see this story unfold. You will see that the timeline for this event extends back some 38 years ago. This is a story which must be reported, a story that must be told truthfully and honestly. Yes, This is a story that I wish someone else was doing but the torch was passed to me and I alone must bear the responsibility for reporting it correctly from the view of a mere by-stander! I will attempt to do my best. I owe you that!
