US troops 'operated within the rules of engagement.'

That's what US Brig. Gen. Mark Kimmitt said the other day in response to charges of a massacre at the Iraqi village of Makr ad-Deeb. At the time, we suggested that an obvious sign of a coverup is when US authorities talk about folowing the rules of engagement.

Since then, Kimmitt has continued to deny massacre reports, saying that the probability of there being a wedding near the attack site 'is certainly greater than zero, but a low, low probability.'

So much for rules of engagement and Kimmitt's math: The AP has come up with film that shows the wedding that didn't happen and the results of the US attack on that wedding.
