Description

The investigation examined the incident that came to be know as the Haditha Massacre, in which a number of Iraqi civilians were killed by U.S. Marines after an IED attack that killed a man in their convoy. The initial reports incorporated accounts of execution-style killings of 24 unarmed men, women and children in a rampage that media often compared to the My Lai massacre. However, the investigation found that the convoy had come under fire from the direction of the four houses, one of the houses contained weapons and forensic and ballistic evidence provided support for the Marines' accounts of what happened that day.
