All Charges Dropped Against Haditha Marine Sharratt

"Abscam Jack" Murtha supports the troops he accuses of "cold blooded murder."

A general dropped all charges Thursday against a Marine who had been accused of killing three Iraqi brothers in response to a roadside bomb attack in Haditha in 2005.

...

In [a previous recommendation to drop the case after reviewing the file], Lt. Col. Paul Ware said murder charges brought against Sharratt were based on unreliable witness accounts, poor forensic evidence and questionable legal theories.

"The government version is unsupported by independent evidence," Ware wrote in an 18-page report. "To believe the government version of facts is to disregard clear and convincing evidence to the contrary."

Thanks to Dan Riehl.
