PBS To Air Haditha documentary

This Tuesday, February 19 at 9:00 pm ET, PBS' Frontline will air a one hour show on what has come to be known as "The Haditha Massacre". The show is entitled "Rules Of Engagement".

Bruce Kesler of The Democracy Project, has been given an advance copy and transcript, and offers an encouraging preview. Keslar gives the show a B- while also acknowledging that an A would have been impossible due to time constraints alone. Defend Our Marines, which site has diligently followed and publicized everything it could obtain on Haditha is also encouraged, and DOM's David Allender posts an interview with the show's producer, Arun Rath.


Rath:  "At the most basic level, I hope [the audience will] come away with a better understanding of what happened in Haditha that day.  More importantly, I'm hoping that people will come away with a deeper appreciation of the extraordinarily difficult job our Marines and soldiers are undertaking in Iraq, in terms of trying to follow the Rules of Engagement in a situation where insurgents intentionally blend in with civilians."
