In November, U.S. Marines allegedly killed two dozen Iraqis, including women and children. Most, if not all, were unarmed. Military sources claim that evidence shows there were mitigating circumstances. Iraqi eyewitnesses claim that the Marines simply went on a rampage. Guests explore the investigation into the Haditha deaths and talk about how the military conducts these kinds of inquiries.
