Did Marines commit murder in Iraq? Three Marines are facing courts-martial and five more could be charged for the kidnap and killing of a 52-year-old Iraqi civilian in Hamandiya, a town west of Baghdad. How will the prosecution proceed? How are the military and the new Camp Pendleton commander approaching the case? And what’s the reaction from local military families, Congress and the public to this latest in a string of cases of alleged military atrocities in Iraq? Host Gloria Penner discusses the trial with Tony Perry of the Los Angeles Times.
