Cue up "I'm Proud to be an American"


First Abu Ghraib. Now more lawlessness in Iraq...by American troops. I know "war is hell," but what do we stand for as a nation when we're willing to execute people like dogs? From the BBC:

US investigates Falluja killing
The US military is looking into whether an American marine in Falluja shot dead a severely wounded Iraqi insurgent at point-blank range.

Television footage shows US soldiers entering a building as injured prisoners lie on the floor.

The images of the alleged point-blank shooting of an Iraqi insurgent were taken by an NBC reporter embedded with the US troops in the Sunni city under assault.
Another incident in Donald Rumsfeld's "winning hearts and minds" campaign. The video and photo is here (not for the weak of heart, friends).
