I know it was a bad thing what I’ve done

I knew the Haditha massacre story was missing something. BBC headline: “Marine Urinated on Haditha Victim.” According to Marine Sgt. Sanick Dela Cruz, testifying under a grant of immunity, “I know it was a bad thing what I’ve done, but I done it because I was angry T.J. was dead and I pissed on one Iraqi’s head.” That one sentence sums up the entire war.

One can only hope the rhyming was unintentional.

The NYT, by the way, primly cuts that quote off at “dead.”
