Charges dropped against "Haditha" marine

All charges have been dropped against Lance Cpl. Justin L. Sharratt:

A general dropped all charges Thursday against a Marine who had been accused of killing three Iraqi brothers in response to a roadside bomb attack in Haditha in 2005.

"The evidence does not support a referral to a court-martial," Lt. Gen. James Mattis wrote in his written decision.

Lance Cpl. Justin L. Sharratt, 22, had been charged with the murder in the deaths of three of those killed after the bomb attack Nov. 19, 2005.

Will we get any reaction from the people that were ready to hang this young man. I doubt it.
