When will we ever learn.....

ABC News: Marine at Haditha: 'I Can Still Smell the Blood':

"May 29, 2006 - As military officials investigate the Haditha killings in Iraq, one of the Marines involved has spoken out about what he saw last year.

Only hours after Iraqi civilians were killed, a second team of Marines was sent in to take the victims' bodies to a local morgue.

Lance Corp. Ryan Briones was among the Marines sent in to recover the bodies, and he told the Los Angeles Times he is still haunted by what he saw, including a young girl who was shot in the head.

'[The victims] ranged from little babies to adult males and females,' Briones told the newspaper. 'I can still smell the blood.'

Briones says he and another Marine were told to photograph the bodies. Military officials say those photos � which they say show people shot at close range in the head and chest � clearly contradict initial reports that the civilians were killed by a roadside bomb."
