New Bad News in Iraq

From the BBC:

The BBC has uncovered new video evidence that US forces may have been responsible for the deliberate killing of 11 innocent Iraqi civilians.

The video appears to challenge the US military's account of events that took place in the town of Ishaqi in March.

The US said at the time four people died during a military operation, but Iraqi police claimed that US troops had deliberately shot the 11 people.

A spokesman for US forces in Iraq told the BBC an inquiry was under way.
This is really getting disgusting.

Haditha, Abu Ghraib, now Ishaqi. George Bush's war in Iraq has done more to damage the reputation of the United States than anything in living memory. Our reputation will not recover. The European generation that saw America as a liberator is dying - replaced by one that sees us as something far different.
