Of the eight Marines originally charged in the case, only one still faces prosecution. Criminal charges have been dismissed against six of the Marines and a seventh Marine was acquitted. We speak with McClatchy's Baghdad bureau chief, Leila Fadel, who recently traveled to Haditha to interview survivors of the massacre.
