For as long as that farce of a show trial has been ongoing, we’ve had our doubts about the prosecution’s claims and, which is worse, the motivations behind pushing the case in the first place. The prosecution’s refusal to give the defense team adequate access to the evidence, the numerous mysterious “deals” with various of the accused, the constantly changing storyline, etc. etc. etc.

None have covered this whole mess better than LCs and IBs Kit and Heidi at Euphoric Reality, so their site would be a good place to go for the details (the category links on their site seem to have died, however, but the search function still works).

And now, thanks to LC & IB Dan Riehl, we hear about this (a few snippets, but do go read the whole thing):

Although the prosecutors said they needed more time to prepare their cases, there is much more to the story than that NewsMax.com has learned, and it paints a shocking picture of a prosecution that should never have been pursued.

In a nutshell, the case exploded when an intelligence officer dropped a bombshell on prosecutors during a pre-hearing interview when he revealed the existence of exculpatory evidence that appears to have been obtained by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) and withheld from the prosecutors.

This officer, described by senior Marine Corps superiors as one of the best and most dedicated intelligence officers in the entire Marine Corps, was in possession of evidence which provided a minute-by-minute narrative of the entire day’s action — material which he had amassed while monitoring the day’s action in his capacity as the battalion’s intelligence officer. That material, he says, was also in the hands of the NCIS.

Much of that evidence remains classified, but it includes videos of the entire day’s action, including airstrikes against insurgent safe houses. Also included was all of the radio traffic describing the ongoing action between the men on the ground and battalion headquarters, and proof that the Marines were aware that the insurgents conducting the ambush of the Kilo Company troops were videotaping the action — the same video that after editing ended up in the hands of a gullible anti-war correspondent for Time magazine.

When asked by the prosecution team to give his copies of the evidence to the prosecution, he told NewsMax.com that he was reluctant to do so, fearing it would again be suppressed or misused, but later relented when ordered by his commanding general to do so.

Confronted by the massive mounds of evidence that Marine Corps sources tell NewsMax proves conclusively that the cases against the Haditha Marines are baseless, the prosecutors were forced to postpone the Article 31 against Lt. Col. Chessani and two of the enlisted men in an attempt to regroup.

NewsMax, however, can reveal that the facts of what happened early that November morning clearly show that the incident was part of a planned ambush by insurgent forces, that the civilians tragically killed in the were used as human shields by the insurgents, and that despite claims by Rep. John Murtha, there was indeed an ongoing firefight between the Marines and the enemy.

Oops, Murthafucker, you disgusting, backstabbing buddy-fucker.

Richard Thompson, the president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Law Center said, “The government’s politicized quest to find wrongdoing in this case will ultimately harm the war effort, and it has already resulted in an incredible expenditure of time, money, and scarce resources, which could be better used fighting the terrorists.

Indeed. But somebody higher up was hell bent and determined to hang a few of our boys out to dry, a human sacrifice to prove how “fair” we are, actual evidence of wrongdoings be damned. Or at least that’s how it has looked to us all along, and this latest development doesn’t serve to dissuade us from that opinion, quite to the contrary.

What this all ends with remains to be seen, but even if the Marines are acquitted, there is no way they can get what they’ve lost back, nor can the damage resulting from this Stalinesque show trial be undone.

This three ring circus has served no purpose other than to embolden our enemies, weaken the war effort and demoralize our troops in the field.

We hope the scum responsible are proud of themselves.

    Your imperialness,
    How possible is the civil lawsuit against the major news twisters who ruined the reputation of the marines? We could set up a website dedicated to fund raising to cover the legal fees.
    Just a thought…

    From the git go this whole “case” against the Marines seemed shaky at best.

    To me it always sounded like a hunt for scapegoats over a tragic incident that didn’t play well in the press. It’s just to damned hard to explain the details of a firefight to lefties who have don’t know what end the bullets come out of. Someone who’s idea of “courage under fire” is calling an exterminator while standing on a chair because they saw a mouse, will never understand what it takes to charge a building that has people in it who want to kill you, let alone the bad things that can happen when you do.

    I would volunteer to stand in a long line to publicly flog that asswipe Murtha as the traitor that he is.

    Shades of Duke perhaps? Sounds like we had some little Nifongs in the making.

    Forget flogging Murtha - I can’t wait until the slander/libel lawsuits start rolling in.

    If he’d kept his self-serving lies & accusations to the senate floor, he’d be safe from from legal action.

    He repeated those vile things in public - on tape and print.

    Too bad for you, Beyotch.

    Bet the prosecutors names are Nifong, Sutton, Fitzgerald, and Earle.

    We hope the scum responsible are proud of themselves.

    We (or at least me) hope the scum get sent to the front lines in Iraq, with no body armor and armed only with a .38 revolver with no extra bullets. I would call that “getting off light”.

    Please. Sue him. Sue Murtha’s pants off. He deserves every single charge, every court date, every outlandish lawyer’s fee, every bit of public humilation and derision possible. I hope it is prolonged and multi-pronged and that it shafts him where the sun don’t shine.

    And this surprises us? Why? The enemy is firmly entrenched in the halls of Congress. They are the Transnational Progressive arm of the old Communist Party. They are here, they took over the country and no one seemed to care or notice much. The first indicator is - look at your tax bill - it approaches the levels of confiscation only found in Socialist states (big S - Socialist).

    Want to get rid of them? Vote for those who are not progressive - that leaves out McCain, Guiliani and many more with an R as their afiliation - get rid of Pelosi, Murtha, Kennedy, Schumer, Reid, etc. Actively campaign this next year - where ever you may reside. Unless we get active, we deserve what ever happens to us.

    I am not really all that much of an activist but I think we have one, maybe two more election cycles to turn the tide or the US is truly sunk.

    Maybe a ‘Throw The Bums Out’ type campaign is needed.

    JMHO

    Although I am glad the new facts are coming out I did occasionally wonder if something happend-not because the majority of our military are ruthless killers(they are not) but because occasinally in war bad things happen. I guess I should never second guess what happens in battle, because I do not have the guts to do what they do.

    I guess I should never second guess what happens in battle, because I do not have the guts to do what they do.

    I too never served. When I should have gone into the service, I was young, dumb, confused by what the media (and congress) were telling me about our goals, but I never questioned whether our troops were “baby killers” or “genocidal maniacs”.

    I always just felt that these were kids put in an incredibly scary situation with people trying to kill them. When the ROE is “unless you see a muzzle flash, regardless of whether they point a weapon at you, you cannot fire”, I think there is a little leeway is warranted.

    Bad things happen in every war, part of it may be revenge of what just happened to their buddy, part may be they just wanted more than anything to get home at the end of their tour, I wasn’t behind them at the time, so I’m going to back them up that it was a threat until proven wrong.
