If troops aren't helping, they're part of the problem

Newsweek has a multimedia report by Chris Hondros who was on a photography assignment for Getty Images with a First Battalion foot patrol in Tal Afar, Iraq in January.

Warning shots were fired as a car approached. When the car failed to slow, soldiers fired directly into the front seat.

After the car rolled to a stop, there were no terrorists, no car bombs. Instead, six children were found in hysterics in the back seat; their mother and father slain in the front seat.

Haven't we caused enough suffering? It's time to bring our troops home.

Note the flashlight mounted on the end of the rifle aimed at the children.
