HADITHA UPDATE: "Military prosecutors plan to file murder, kidnapping and conspiracy charges against seven Marines and a Navy corpsman in the shooting death of an Iraqi man in April, a defense lawyer said Thursday."
Interestingly, this isn't about Haditha, but another case from earlier this Spring; the Haditha investigation continues. As Peter Beinart noted in our podcast earlier, the difference between the United States and most other countries isn't that we're perfect, but that we follow up stuff like this. That tends to get missed in the coverage.
The Mudville Gazette has much more on this story. And read this post over at Michael Yon's site.
Ace, meanwhile, is unimpressed with the "higher standard" argument.
