Here is LA Times coverage of Monday’s opening arguments in the court-martial of SSgt Frank Wuterich. The North County Times has additional coverage here

Prosecutors painted a picture of a Marine who lost control and said they will present “[t]estimony . . . that Wuterich stood at the foot of a bed where a woman and child were cowering in fear and shot them in the head.” Defense attorneys say their client operated within the ROE and will be exonerated, putting “Haditha behind us.”  I am not sure the Iraqis or the victims families can just put the incident behind them, but the quote may be out of context.
