More on Lt. Ilario Pantano

From WorldNetDaily:

Charles Gittins, who represents Pantano, told WorldNetDaily the Navy man was one of two witnesses, along with the accuser, to the April 15, 2004, incident in which the Marine Corps officer shot the two Iraqis after detaining them in an operation to secure a weapon-laden hideaway in the Sunni Triangle.

The only difference in the two accounts is that the Navy man believes the Iraqis were running away, and Pantano believes they were running toward him, Gittins maintans. [sic]

Were that navy guy making it up he'd have make his story exactly the same as Lt. Ilario Pantano's. I have a feeling the Marines are going to be really embarrassed once all the details come out. The sole accuser sounds like someone with a grudge, and now there are more witnesses coming out.
