Another massacre

11 people. I eagerly await the right-wing pundit response expaining just how they all somehow deserved it, or started it by living where they live, or how you just have to expect this sort of thing and to grow up and move on. Via 2millionth.

The latest stories now say US forces have been "cleared" of any wrongdoing; however, it looks like it's more of a technicality than anything else. Civilians were killed--and I can't imagine that generating any positive reaction from the Iraqis we're supposed to be "liberating."

I guess whether it was an accident or not could be important for strict legal purposes...but the event--and all the other accidents or not-so-accidental killings underscore the fact that our presence there has been harmful both to the Iraqis and our own policy aims in the region.
