The 400 pages of interrogations, once closely guarded as secrets of war, were supposed to have been destroyed as the last American troops prepare to leave Iraq. Instead, they were discovered along with reams of other classified documents, including military maps showing helicopter routes and radar capabilities, by a reporter for The New York Times at a junkyard outside Baghdad. An attendant was burning them as fuel to cook a dinner of smoked carp.
The documents — many marked secret — form part of the military’s internal investigation, and confirm much of what happened at Haditha, a Euphrates River town where Marines killed 24 Iraqis, including a 76-year-old man in a wheelchair, women and children, some just toddlers.


W.T.F. :thumbsdown:

WTF is about all I can come up with too... Who the hell was in charge of destroying all this stuff? Who decided a shredder and burn barrel was unnecessary?!?

Unforgivable!

The unit responsible should be found and then people should pay for this. :mad:
