Reader Charles Henkel sent a link to a Reuters news story on the Haditha incident. It is dated November 20, 2005 - one day after the incident.
Charles includes these comments: "This article published on the ABC (Australia) News Online website, http://www.abc.net.au/news/newsitems/200511/s1510903.htm , attributed to Reuters and published contemporaneously with the alleged Haditha massacre, states the following:
'A cameraman working for Reuters in Haditha says bodies had been left lying in the street for hours after the attack. '
Any footage filmed by this cameraman may provide exculpatory evidence for the Marines accused in the civilian deaths. Particularly if one of the victims filmed outside was later found inside a house. "
As they say in sports - let's go to the tape.
If Reuters has tape of the incident, it will be surely be made available for the military investigation. Right?
UPDATE: In the comments section - "The credit for finding the article actully goes to poster "SBD1" at the Free Republic web site in this thread http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1645392/posts where you can find additional discussion."
