It's like Deja Vu all over again, only this time with crappy music.
I'm trying to not burst into flames. I'm trying not to break into tears. I'm going to quote a lot of the original story because I can't put a funny twist on any of this.
It looks like the war has taken a dark and all-too-familiar turn. The Pentagon said that U.S. Marines killed 15 innocent civilians, including seven women and three children.
A young Iraqi girl said the Marines killed six members of her family, including her parents. “The Americans came into the room where my father was praying,” she said, “and shot him.”
On Wednesday, Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., said the accounts are true.
Military officials told NBC News that the Marine Corps' own evidence appears to show Murtha is right. Another official said, “This one is ugly."
