Haditha Trial & Events (Resource)

March 9, 2016

I attended a presentation this past weekend on the topic of U.S. Military rules of engagement (R.O.E.) violations and war crimes. A primary focus of the presentation were the trials that followed the Haditha (Iraq) incident of 2005.

It has been a while since I last read about what happened regarding Haditha and I have therefore spent the past week researching the incident, the trials, and the news coverage that followed.

I stumbled upon a couple of great resources and wanted to post them here for others to reference. Please note, despite the following links, I am not taking a political stance on this event.
