Marine Lt. Colonel Jeffrey Chessani to Be Arraigned Friday, Nov.16th

Two years ago the so-called “Haditha Massacre” took place. You know - the story that Time magazine reported on and which caused Congressman Jack Murtha to claim our troops committed cold blooded murder of innocent Iraqi women and children, even before the investigation was completed.

Well, now Marine Lt. Colonel Jeffrey Chessani will be charged with failing to properly report and investigate a possible “law of war” violation when this "massacre" took place. What it was, was a house-to-house battle involving four Marines from Lt.Col. Chessani’s battalion.

The story was concocted by "known terrorist propaganda operatives" and our media was ever-so happy to run with the "massacre" story. Several marines that had been charged have now been exonerated and the story has now been discredited as a U.S. Army Colonel and an Army General conducted two separate investigations. They came to the same conclusion. There was no ‘massacre.’ There was no ‘cover-up.’ Yet, our government presses on with these charges against Lt. Col. Chessani.

Chessani is a 20 year veteran, father of 5 young children with a sixth on the way. He served in the Panama Invasion, the Persian Gulf War, and three tours in Iraq, including the Second Battle of Fallujah. If he were to be found guilty, he faces 2 ½ years imprisonment, a dishonorable discharge from the Marines; which means, of course, he would lose all of his retirement benefits.

So what we have is Lt. Col. Chessani being charged with failing to report and investigate a crime that never occurred.

The Thomas More Law Center has defended some of the marines that were charged and consequently exonerated. They also will be defending Lt. Col. Chessani.
