Ten Bad Apples

The ghosts of Haditha:
A knowledgeable congressional source monitoring the Haditha probes says congressional aides are being told by Marine officers in the Pentagon that the number of Marines who may be charged with murder is small.

But the source speculates that the total number who may be charged with crimes ranging from murder to aiding in the attack or trying to cover it up could be as high as 10, according to Marines who have talked to officials at the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, which is conducting the inquiry into the killings.
Or as low as ten, depending how you look at it (or write about it).
