Operation Iraqi Freedom Continues

"I've come to not only look you in the eye. I've also come to tell you that when America gives its word, it keeps its word."
-Bush told Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki during a five-hour visit to Baghdad today.

According to the U.S. military the raid was staged in the area where terror leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was killed and the targeted terrorists had ties to senior al-Qaida leaders across Iraq. The U.S. military said coalition forces had killed seven terrorists and two children, whilst local residents accused the Americans of targeting civilians. (AP Photo)

A music video posted on the Internet that tells a tale about a U.S. Marine killing members of an Iraqi family is being condemned by an Islamic group and investigated by the Marine Corps.

The four-minute song, "Hadji Girl," appears to be sung by a Marine in front of a cheering audience. The lyrics talk about the Marine gunning down members of an Iraqi woman's family after they confront him with automatic weapons.

Lt. Col. Scott Fazekas, a spokesman for the Marines, said Tuesday that the Marines were aware of the video. Fazekas said officials don't know the identity of the singer or whether he is in the military.

The song was "inappropriate and contrary to the high standards expected of all Marines," Fazekas said. He said Marine officers are looking in to the matter.

"The U.S. military said coalition forces had killed seven terrorists and two children, whilst local residents accused the Americans of targeting civilians."

So...it was due to bad aim that Zarqawi and seven terrorists were killed when American forces missed their intended target of civilians? (Well, they did get two civilians, but still....)
