Iraqi Ambassador to America: Marines Killed My Cousin
Watch the exchange on CNN in which Al-Sumaidaie makes the startling accusation.
Wait, before you go…
Crooks and Liars:
BLITZER: So what you’re suggesting, your cousin was killed in cold blood, is that what you’re saying, by United States Marines?
AL-SUMAIDAIE: I believe he was killed intentionally. I believe that he was killed unnecessarily. And unfortunately, the investigations that took place after that sort of took a different course and concluded that there was no unlawful killing.
I would like further investigation. I have, in fact, asked for the report of the last investigation, which was a criminal investigation, by the way.
