Moral values 

Let's watch Bush win Iraqi hearts and minds!

A U.S. Marine shot and killed a wounded and apparently unarmed Iraqi prisoner in a mosque in the former insurgent stronghold of Fallujah, according to dramatic pool television pictures broadcast Monday.

Thank God the Geneva Convention is "quaint"!

In this image taken from pool video provided to the Associated Press by NBC News, a U.S. marine is seen, left, raising his rifle in the direction of Iraqi prisoners lying on the floor of a mosque in Fallujah, Iraq Saturday Nov. 13, 2004. The pool video was recorded Saturday as the Marines returned to an unidentified Fallujah mosque. The video, in a version aired by CNN showed the Marine raising his rifle toward the prisoners but neither NBC nor CNN showed the shooting itself. The video was blacked out but the report of the rifle could be heard. The bodies in the foreground are other Iraqi prisoners.

Just another fraternity prank....

The NBC's Kevin Sites says the wounded men had been left in the mosque after marines had fought their way in on Friday and Saturday.

According to Mr Sites, one of the soldiers points his rifle at the head of one of the injured, an old man. The sound of a shot is then heard.

And of course, a few "bad apples" will take the fall for this, just like at Abu Ghraib. Because under Bush, there's never ever ANY accountability for the higherups. Those are the moral values of the Bush regime.

Moral values... 'Scuse me, got to go vomit now.

UPDATE More from NBC's Kevin Sites.
