Press Accounts Suggest Possible Military ‘Cover-up’ in Ishaqi Killings

NEW YORK The U.S military said Saturday it had found no wrongdoing in the March 15 raid on a home in Ishaqi that left nine Iraqi civilians dead.
But, as with the apparent massacre in Haditha, will a military “coverup” in this case come undone?
The Iraqi police charge that American forces executed the civilians, including a 75-year-old woman and a 6-month-old baby.
The BBC has been airing video of the dead civilians, mainly children, who appeared to be shot, possibly at close range.
Photographs taken just after the raid for Agence France-Presse, and reports at the time by Reuters and Knight Ridder, also appear to largely back up the charge of an atrocity.
