This Dubya approved adventure in Iraq just keeps getting better and better...

"The U.S. military has begun an investigation into possible war crimes after a television pool report by NBC showed a Marine shooting dead a wounded and unarmed Iraqi in a Falluja mosque, officials said on Monday."

Well no doubt that action would earn Dubya some red state votes.... but are these types of circumstances really what we want for our troops?

And how do these sort of actions -- committed in a mosque no less!?! -- and the subsequent dissemination of these images throughout the world help us win the 'war on terror'? (And please, no 'the press is to blame' babble... that is what the French said regarding torture in Algeria.)
