Haditha Incident

Kline had said "'There is no question that the Marines involved, those doing the shooting, they were busy in lying about it and covering it up — there is no question about it,' Kline said." (LA Times, May 27, 2006). Kline was dropped from the lawsuit after apologizing. (Source: Glenn Greenwald).
