Here is LA Times’ update for yesterday’s proceedings that included the testimony of former Cpl Stephen Tatum. Tatum, according to the LAT, testified that “Staff Sgt. Frank Wuterich, labeled the home [where many of the killings occurred] ‘hostile,’ [and told the squad that] there was no need to ask questions to distinguish between combatants and noncombatants before killing those inside with M-16 fire and grenades.” The story also reports that after testifying that “[t]he only thing that gave me the idea that there was hostile intent [on the part of residents] was Staff Sgt. Wuterich firing,” Cpl Tatum responded on cross that he thought SSgt Wuterich had not done anything wrong in the killings.
