The probe into the Haditha killings has found they were unprovoked:
A preliminary military inquiry found evidence that U.S. Marines killed two dozen Iraqi civilians in an unprovoked attack in November, contradicting the troops' account, U.S. officials said on Wednesday.
Forensic evidence from corpses showed that victims had bullet wounds, despite the initial statements by Marines that the civilians were killed by a roadside bomb that also claimed the life of a soldier, a defense official said.
Of course Bush is promising action on this:
President George W. Bush said on Wednesday there would be punishment if an investigation turns up evidence of wrongdoing by U.S. Marines in the killings in the Iraqi town of Haditha.
"I am troubled by the initial news stories," Bush said. "I am mindful there is a thorough investigation going on. If in fact laws were broken there will be punishment."
I guess that action would be criminal punishment for the actual shooters and medals of freedom for the people who covered it up. And for those who don't believe there was a cover-up check out the following.
The three-week probe was the first official investigation into the killings.
