GIs Cleared WRT Ishaqi; Probe Open on Haditha

June 3, 2006 at 1:19 am (Iraq, The Left)

According to Yahoo! News, GIs have been cleared of any charges regarding collateral damage at Ishaqi. The probe regarding the same by Marines at Haditha is still open.

To reiterate Our previous policy: We will not formulate an opinion until the probe has come to an end and the results thereof have been released.

We shall place the following piece of information alongside whatever finding the probe may release (from the aforementioned article):

He also said victims' relatives turned down a request by U.S. investigators to exhume the victims' bodies for forensic tests.

Unlike some, We refuse to proclaim anyone guilty, deserving of punishment, or otherwise culpable until the probe has ended and its findings have been released. We similarly suspend any proclamation of innocence, even though under the law and legal system of The United States one is innocent until proven guilty. We furthermore condemn anyone who formulates an opinion or judgment before the same. No one can formulate a just opinion or judgment until the facts have been brought forth, and this cannot occur until the investigation has come to an end and its findings are released.
