meanwhile back in iraq

holden at first draft has some disturbing accounts of what we did in fallujah:

one of the few reporters who has reached falluja is american dahr jamail of the inter press service. he interviewed a doctor who had filmed the testimony of a 16-year-old girl.

"she stayed for three days with the bodies of her family who were killed in their home. when the soldiers entered she was in her home with her father, mother, 12 year-old brother and two sisters.

she watched the soldiers enter and shoot her mother and father directly, without saying anything. they beat her two sisters, then shot them in the head. after this her brother was enraged and ran at the soldiers while shouting at them, so they shot him dead," jamail relates.

more, and worse, here.
