Lawyer: Haditha Marines Were Fired On

Lawyer: Haditha Marines Were Fired On

Tuesday, May 30, 2006 11:38 p.m. EDT

Contrary to claims from Rep. John Murtha, Marines accused of executing 24 innocent Iraqis in the village of Haditha last November were indeed fired upon after their convoy was hit by a roadside bomb - according to a lawyer involved in the case.

"There's a ton of information that isn't out there yet," the lawyer said Monday, speaking on condition of anonymity to the Washington Post.

He said contemporaneous radio messages reviewed by military investigators will show that Marines accused of unprovoked retaliation after the blast had, in fact, come under small-arms fire.

I watched the O’Rilley Factor last night and General Wesley Clark was on defending Murtha on what he did. I couldn’t believe what was coming out of Clark’s mouth. How could a retired Army General defend a retired Marine Colonel accusing and convicting Marines of atrocities when even the investigation isn’t complete?

Suricou Raven........ I am not allowing your post on this subject.

These are OUR Marines NOT your troops. You have a lot of nerve to tell me I cannot post about this subject. Your post was disgusting beyond words. You have done this before to me several times, and I let it slide. You have said other things that I let slide that I normally never would have.

I did not make this a political fight, Murtha has. He is a traitor to America, to the Marine Corp. and to all our troops serving now.

I did not, nor ever have put words in HIS mouth he did that all on his own. The things he has been saying needs to be countered if there is anything being said in a positive light for the Marine(s)involved.

As far as how I feel about what may or may not have happened I have been writing something on that for days and will one day post it on here.

Till then I have EVERY right to post articles or comments by others that say things of hope for our troops where the main media is NOT, or the politicians like Murtha are NOT.

IF you were to actually READ the things I have posted so far they ALL have been said by others ( lawyers, the media as in the girl from CNN, a Marine that lived through something like this, etc.) You will NOT find as of yet a post with Wild Thing's comment. But you will one day very soon!

Hi Bob I agree with you. I sure as heck would not want Clark or Murtha in my foxhole. It is like they cannot wait to condemn.

If only John Murtha could be as driven and dedicated to investigating some of the doings in the moslem community in Dearborn, Michigan. Such as the source of laser beams fired at commercial jet liners.

And Wesley Clark, a pure vain political animal now.

Tom I agree they both are such a waste, such a total waste. They are in positions of a certain amount of power. But instead of being better men and they can't, it is not in them.
