The Iraq Veterans Memorial is "an online war memorial that honors the members of the U.S. armed forces who have lost their lives serving in the Iraq War. The Memorial is a collection of video memories from family, friends, military colleagues, and co-workers of those that have fallen." A project of the Brave New Foundation. [Via Bushflash.]

Thanks for the links, homunculus. I'd like to see the "Iraq for Sale" movie that the Brave New Foundation is touting. Too bad they haven't just put it up on the web for viewing by all, like the folks who made The Corporation did.

Iraq for Sale is on google video. I think he put it there. It's a great movie and very informative.

Haditha Marine Says He'd Do It Again: Frank Wuterich tells 60 Minutes He's Sorry Iraqi Civilians Were Killed, But Insists He Made Right Decision

Here's an exhaustive article on the Haditha incident from Vanity Fair:

Rules of Engagement: On November 19, 2005, in Haditha, during Kilo Company's third tour of duty in Iraq, a land mine planted by insurgents exploded beneath a Humvee, killing a 20-year-old Marine. What happened next—the slaughter of 24 Iraqi men, women, and children—was not entirely an aberration. These actions were rooted in the very conduct of the war.

That was an informative and well written article by William Langewiesche. And those photos of those four Marines by Lucian Read are haunting yet cavalier.

This is interesting, a fitting and honorable memorial for the soldiers of the youtube generation. Thanks for the links!
