People of Haditha: “This is an Organized Crime”
By Robert Dreyfuss, The Nation. Posted June 23, 2008.
Small tragedies can get lost in a big war, but it is sad and troubling that, so far at least, it looks like no one is going to have to pay for the November, 2005, massacre of 24 civilians in Haditha, Iraq. That’s the mostly Sunni city in which, at the height of the insurgency, U.S. Marines mowed down a carful of unarmed Iraqi men, apparently shooting them point blank as they lay on the ground, and then stormed into surrounding homes where they butchered men, women, and children.
So the tragedy of the massacre is now compounded by the tragedy of a judicial whitewash and coverup. As Bob Dylan wrote in “The Lonesome Ballad [sic; Lonesome Death] of Hattie Carroll,” about a maid slaughtered by her employer who was then given a six-month sentence for murder: “Now is the time for your tears.”
