AP Drums Up Some Haditha Non-News

What are two Pentagon officials doing talking to an AP reporter about Haditha?
Source: Haditha evidence implicates Marines

WASHINGTON - Evidence collected on the deaths of 24 Iraqis in Haditha supports accusations that U.S. Marines deliberately shot the civilians, including unarmed women and children, a Pentagon official said Wednesday.

Agents of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service have completed their initial work on the incident last November, but may be asked to probe further as Marine Corps and Navy prosecutors review the evidence and determine whether to recommend criminal charges, according to two Pentagon officials who discussed the matter on condition of anonymity.
Don't be fooled into thinking these Pentagon officials serve in the armed forces. They are almost certainly civilian employees who share the AP reporter's Bush Derangement Syndrome and anti-war sentiments.

They very well could be the same dogs that leaked information to John Murtha, who broke the story in classic guilty until proven innocent style.

They are disgusting, and AP is disgusting for returning to their pig wallow for more non-news.

Does AP think we're interested in a story that reports nothing new -- because no news has occured, only speculative leaks -- and merely dredges up prejudicial, negative information prior to a trial ... if there even is a trial?

AP might be interested because it keeps up the negative drum beat. I don't think many Americans share their enthusiasm.
