U.S. Military Denies New Abuse Allegations at Ishaqi

Officials Conclude Troops Followed Rules of Engagement
By JONATHAN KARL




June 2, 2006 — Horrific images of Iraqi adults and children have fueled new allegations that U.S. troops killed civilians in the Iraqi town of Ishaqi. But ABC News has learned that military officials have completed their investigation and concluded that U.S. forces followed the rules of engagement.

Harditha is the issue of the day. You weren't trying to mislead anyone by the title of this thread were you? :roll:

I don't think he realized the difference.

Same **** I know there's accusations in Haditha too, but just like this supposed "massacre" I am confident that the drive by media has jumped the shark with that one too.

Oh no you're right, I've only been on the Haditha thread for like a week now telling you people to chill until the facts are in.
You people? Purlease, have some respect for someone who hasn't even participated in that horrible thread.

This is unecessary and uncalled for.

Who exactly do you think you're addressing?

No one imparticular, that's why it's not a personnel attack which is acceptable as per forum rules, (they know who they are).
First you say it's not addressed to anyone in particular then you say they know who they are.

My question, how is it not specifically a slam on particular people if they know who they are.

Tell me how a blanket statement is a personal attack? Who specifically did I attack? Whose name was mentioned?

Personal - 2. relating to one person: relating to a particular individual

First of all, it is a personAL attack against many persons...mainly those who expressed opinions you didn't like. Second, there is a forum rule specifically condemning being a jerk which I believe calling other members pieces of **** and telling them to burn in hell specifically violates. Whether you specifically called them out by name or not is irrelevant.

It is no longer a blanket statement when you say, you know who you are. You are personally attacking everyone who falls under the, you know who you are part of your attack. You meant it as an attack on people personally whether you named names or not trying to get around the rules for personal attacks.

Some one in this thread is a total dumb***, you know who you are.
