Let's skip that pesky investigation

A widely distributed Los Angeles Times story gives Haditha the same status as Abu Ghraib.

In the article that produces the headline: Pentagon Plans to Dump Geneva Rules we read:

"Critics and supporters of US President George W. Bush have debated whether it is possible to prove a direct link between administration declarations that it will not be bound by the Geneva Convention, and events such as the abuses at Abu Ghraib or the killings of Iraqi civilians last year in Haditha, The Times said."

It takes so much extra ink to place "alleged" in front of the words "killings of Iraqi civilians" and besides, to be safe, no where does it say in this article that is was U.S. Marines that killed them.
