Skip to comments.Haditha Child: I Knew of Bomb Plot to Kill Marines
Posted on 06/03/2006 8:26:22 AM PDT by Carl/NewsMax
A 12-year old survivor of the alleged massacre of innocent civilians by U.S. Marines patrolling Haditha has admitted she had prior knowledge of the plot to detonate an IED as their convoy was passing by her house on the morning of Nov. 19, 2005.
In a CNN interview broadcast Wednesday, Safa Younis - who says eight members of her family were killed by U.S. troops - recalled that she was getting ready for school as the Marine Humvee approached.
"I was planning to go to school. I was about to go out of bed. I knew the bomb would explode so I covered my ears," the youngster said, according to a CNN translator.
"The bomb [then] exploded," she explained. "The bomb struck an armored vehicle. I don't know if it was a Humvee or an armored vehicle. When the bomb exploded, they came straight to my house."
Younis complained that after the bombing killed Lance Cpl. Miguel Terrazas, his fellow Marines broke down the front door of her house.
"The American forces entered the house and started shooting with their guns. They killed my mother and my sister Nour. They killed her when she shot her in the head. She was only 15 years old. My other sister was shot with seven bullets in the head and she was only 10 years old."
The Haditha co-conspirator continued:
"And my brother Muhammad was hiding under the bed when the U.S. military hit him with the butt of the gun and the started shooting him under the bed. The U.S. military then shot me and I was showered in blood. We couldn't leave the house because the U.S. military surrounded the area with a large number of soldiers."
Younis said she survived by pretending to be dead.
But the "innocent" Haditha 12-year-old failed to give any further details about which other family members knew about the bomb plot. Or whether one of her relatives had detonated the blast.
SUSPECT.... the entire language of her conversation is suspect... give me a break...they shot her brother 7 times in the head... Hollywood style crap..
Well now, this is an interesting turn of events.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm ... I still thinks this stinks.
He might have agreed to lie to save his own hide. He KNOWS what the enemy can and will gladly do to him.
Leave it to CNN to unearth this.
I wonder if mean-mouthed Murtha has read or heard about this! Someone knew enough to tell this child about it as she covered her ears before the explosion....but the Marines are portrayed as the bad guys here...go figure.
If those things are detonated by radio control (which I assume they are) one can only wonder if any members of that household participated.
It's a good thing that despite this traumatic event, she was able to keep an exact count on how many times her brother got shot in the head.
Seven is a holy number.
I'm starting to get some hope that maybe this will turn out to be a big piece of propaganda blowback. Maybe it's time to start praying for it.
I forced myself to watch the Mark Shields/David Brooks segment of Jim Lehrer's program on PBS last night, which was mostly about Haditha and other alleged incidents...Brooks wasn't quite as lame as usual. Shields was into his usual moral outrage shtick...it never seemed to occur to him that "testimony" from pro-insurgent civilians might be a lie...he referred to testimony from a 9-year-old Iraqi as if it had to be the truth.
Good stuff, Carl.
Keep it coming.
They knew the attack was going to happen. Why didn't anyone warn the Marines? Who says many of the family was dead before the bomb went off? Who says this whole thing wasn't a set-up by the terrorists to begin with?? This one smells real fishy??
Pray for W and Our Marines
One of the MANY staged photos the media uses to manipulate the public.
ANOTHER TERRORIST MEDIA ATTACK ON AMERICA
The National Media engine of the Democratic Party knows absolutely no limits on its attacks of America. Speaking out of both sides of their treacherous mouths, these Democratic Party surrogates say they support the troops while attacking them at the same time. They will give days or weeks of airtime to fruitcakes like Murtha to spout their anti-American propaganda just to distract from the real issue that Democratic politicians are criminally collecting bribes.
It now appears that the national media water boys for the Democratic Party have stepped in it again.
While spouting day and night about U.S. Troops having "assassinated" innocent civilians, just to escalate the conflict in Iraq and kill more U.S. soldiers, they ignored basic standards of journalism. The routinely quoted innuendo and allegation as fact. Mind you, ONLY the Democratic Party innuendo and allegation that is. Their blind hatred of America and Bush is so frightening, it is only eclipsed by terrorists who hijacked several jets and flew two of those jets into the New York Twin Towers.
It's really no suprise. After all, just before the 2004 Elections, the Democratic Party released a strategy memo that talked about working through their media allies to undermine America just so they could attack Bush. http://www.nodnc.com/modules.php?name=Content&pa=showpage&pid=373.
The Democrat media knows no bounds. Today, after the military conducted a thorough investigation, it released its report demonstrating that the Marines being ATTACKED by the Democrat Media followed protocol in engaging an armed enemy who is attacking them.
This recent Reuters / Yahoo News Report demonstrates that the media was on a witch-hunt against the military for the Democratic Party. The findings make it absolutely clear that the media and Murtha for the Democratic Party are just plain LYING TO AMERICA TO SUPPORT TERRORIST ATTACKS ON AMERICAN TROOPS!
"Allegations that the troops executed a family living in this safe house, and then hid the alleged crimes by directing an air strike, are absolutely false," Maj. Gen. William Caldwell, a senior U.S. military spokesman in Iraq, said in a statement released in Baghdad. http://www.nodnc.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=593
Anyone watching this, and carefully studying it all really has to be shaking their heads and wondering why the media would go to such extremes, even with their love affair for the Democratic Party? After all, such ridiculous claims WILL cause their already dwindling audiences to plummet even further. So why would they do such a stupid thing? Then it hit me!!!
THE DEMOCRAT MEDIA CAN NOT ALLOW ANY PEACE OR STABILITY IN IRAQ THAT WOULD ALLOW FOR A TROOP DRAW DOWN BEFORE THE 2006 OR 2008 ELECTIONS!
After all, the Democrat media have gone out of their way to create a Civil War in Iraq http://www.nodnc.com/modules.php?name=Content&pa=showpage&pid=361 even though Iraq is safer than many major U.S. Cities run by Democrats - http://www.nodnc.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=419. Using the Democrat media logic, we have totally lost the war in New Orleans, DC, and Detroit. We should be pulling all of the police, firemen, and National Guard out immediately.
The Democrat media MUST keep Iraq unstable, they MUST keep tensions high to get more U.S. soldiers killed, they MUST continue lying to the public to advance an agenda that most rational people would think is insane, they MUST continue to misuse their positions to push their Democratic Party agenda forward. Destroying America in the process is not only acceptable, it is necessary to manipulate and deceive Americans because the United States stands in the way of implementing their documented goal of global socialism through the United Nations. http://www.nodnc.com/modules.php?name=Content&pa=showpage&pid=191
Any draw down of U.S. Troops, before the elections in 2006 or 2008 undermines the TENS, IF NOT HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN FREE POLITICAL ATTACK AIR TIME FOR THE DEMOCRATS! The THOUSANDS of hours of media air time from the various National media channels easily adds up to this. And it could all be completely wasted by Iraq stabilizing enough to begin troop withdrawals.
The Democrat Media can not allow this. So helping to incite a Civil War in Iraq, or getting more of our troops killed are perfectly acceptable ways for them to ensure that their investment in Democratic political attack air time is not wasted again.

"then they shot my wife who was knitting a sweater. That's right. My wife, Morgan Fairchild."
Amazing knowledge of US military vehicle names for a 12 year old Iraqi child.
Something led the Marines directly to that house....
However, the MSM has already convicted the Marines. No proof required aside from trumped up and enemy testimony
More BS from the Communist News Network.
When the Marines are exonerated; I expect to see an apology & retraction from the MSM...but I won't be holding my breath.
that's funny man
I think you were looking for this.
if the smallest child in the house knew about it, everybody knew about it.
