Peter Daou: As I wrote earlier, rightwing bloggers have come unhinged over Haditha:

"Michelle Malkin posts an LGF photo of Palestinian children carrying weapons - the implication being? That shooting children is justified?

Glenn Reynolds links to a comment threatening civil war in the US.

At RCP, Jed Babbin writes, "If it were up to Cong. John Murtha, Duke University rape case prosecutor Mike Nifong would be transferred to the Haditha case."

If this BBC report is accurate, expect more extreme rhetoric from these rightwing bloggers as they cling to the tattered remnants of their fictional moral justification for this misadventure."
