Once again, killing Iraqis is not a crime
A U.S. military investigation found no misconduct by U.S. soldiers who killed eight Iraqi policemen and a Jordanian hospital guard near Fallujah on Sept. 12, the U.S. commander in Iraq said Thursday. "The initial findings are that the soldiers acted within the construct of the military's rules of engagement," Lt. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez said of the action by the 82nd Airborne Division. -- Washington Post

Well maybe, General, there's something wrong with the rules of engagement. Maybe there's something very wrong with U.S. soldiers being in Iraq. If they're not to blame, the blame moves up the chain of command. Turn yourself in, General. You too, Rummy and Dummy.
