Holes in the Haditha coverage

The Sweetness & Light blog has raised questions concerning Time's reporting on Haditha. It appears Time relied on video provided by the Hammurabi Human Rights Group. As it turns out, the HHRG consists of a grand total of two members, one of whom has spent time in jail for his ties to insurgents. Time has run two corrections to its original story on how it described the Hammurabi group.

While this doesn't disprove something outside the rules of combat occurred at Haditha, it at least shows the "Haditha Massacre" headlines may be premature. We don't know fully what happened there.
