Dahr Jamail Speaks About the Haditha Massacre on Democracy Now!

An internal military investigation has found that U.S. marines killed as many as 24 Iraqis – including women and children – in the city of Haditha on November 19, 2005 and then tried to cover it up. In this video, Amy Goodman speaks with: an attorney and researcher at Human Rights Watch, independent journalist Dahr Jamail, and the bureau chief for Knight Ridder in Baghdad. Not surprisingly, the day after the Haditha event, Al Jazeera’s November 20th, 2005 report about the Haditha massacre was more correct than the western corporate media. So we need to ask: Does the “cover-up” implicate much of the western corporate media as well as individuals in the military?
