US Troops Murder 11 people

Here is what the US claimed happened in this incident according to Reuters:

"The U.S. military said in a statement its troops had attacked a house in Ishaqi early on Wednesday to capture a "foreign fighter facilitator for the al Qaeda in Iraq network".
"Troops were engaged by enemy fire as they approached the building," U.S. spokesman Major Tim Keefe said. "Coalition Forces returned fire utilising both air and ground assets.
"There was one enemy killed. Two women and one child were also killed in the firefight. The building ... (was) destroyed."
Keefe said the al Qaeda suspect had been captured and was being questioned.

What actually did happen is more likely to be this account from the same article:

"Major Ali Ahmed of the Ishaqi police said U.S. forces had landed on the roof of the house in the early hours and shot the 11 occupants, including the five children.
"After they left the house they blew it up," he said.
Another policeman, Major Farouq Hussein, said all the bodies had gunshot wounds to the head.
Pictures of the house targeted in the raid showed it had been reduced to rubble, while next to it lay the burnt-out wreckage of a truck.

It looks as if they have the attitude "Kill them all and let 'God' sort them out!".

What did any ot these people do to us?

NOTHING, as I can recall!

Of course, there are probably still a few Americans who think that the Iraqis were going to decimate the US with Nuclear, Chemical and Biological warfare agents. I would laugh at these sort of people but at the moment I feel way too much like crying...
