Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

Haditha Marines

The persecution of the Haditha Marines continues to fall apart. By my count, we now have 6 people who've been cleared out of 8 indictments. I wonder when Prime Minister Maliki, the various reporters who jumped on the bandwagon, and especially John Murtha will be asked to answer for their reckless condemnations?
