From the New Zealand Herald:
Fifty US veterans describe atrocities against Iraqis

WASHINGTON – It is an axiom of American political life that the actions of the US military are beyond criticism.
That perception has taken a severe knock today with the publication in The Nation magazine of a series of in-depth interviews with fifty combat veterans of the Iraq war from across the United States.
The report steers clear of widely reported atrocities – such as the massacre in Haditha in 2005 – but instead unearths instead a pattern of human rights abuses through the testimony of veterans of the war in Iraq.
“It’s not individual atrocity,” said Specialist Garett Reppenhagen, a sniper from the 263rd Armor Battalion, “It’s the fact that the entire war is an atrocity.”
This view is being echoed in Washington where increasing numbers of Democrats and Republicans are now openly calling for an early withdrawal from Iraq.
And the Iraqi quagmire has pushed President George W. Bush’s poll ratings to an all-time low.
Journalists and human rights groups have published numerous reports, drawing attention to the killing of Iraqi civilians by US forces.
The Nation’s investigation has for the first time presented named military witnesses who openly back those assertions – some participated themselves.
