PARIS A former U.S. Marine in Iraq alleges that his battalion committed atrocities against Iraqi civilians during the U.S.-led invasion in 2003, including shooting unarmed protesters.
Jimmy Massey, a staff sergeant who was in the Marines for 12 years and served three months in Iraq before being honorably discharged with post-traumatic stress syndrome, details the allegations in his book, Kill! Kill! Kill!, written with the French journalist Natasha Saulnier and published in France.
A Pentagon spokeswoman said Massey's complaints had already been investigated and found to be unsubstantiated.
Massey said he was in charge of a platoon in the 3rd Batallion of Regimental Combat Team 7, responsible for setting up checkpoints and providing armed cover against terrorists and insurgents.
He alleges that over a period of a month and a half in 2003, his platoon killed more than 30 civilians in Iraq.
Mr. Massey made allegations of genocide by members of his command, 3rd Battalion, 7th Marines, resulting in an investigation, she said.

Its hard to believe that even the French would believe this crap, wait no it isn't.
John Kerry, Jr.
Sounds like some hairy french chick put out for Massey so he aGREED to the book.
I'd like to hear what members of his command have to say.
I was about to say...He's just setting himself up for a 2032 Presidential Bid for the demoCREEP party.
Got a story so stupid, so ridiculous and unbelievable that even the most vapor-locked idiot wouldn't believe it? Sell it in France.
A book to sale...lol
This guy will probably end up as the VP candidate in 2008 for the dem party---he is a dream come true for them!
mise à mort de mise à mort de mise à mort
Leave it to the French. Couldn't find a publisher here in the states? What? Not even the NYT would buy this story?
I was thinking the same thing myself.
She was clearly mistaken in her understanding of what happened in New Orleans, but the reading public in the United Kingdom ate this stuff up like there was no end.
So did America's main stream media!
I'd doubt the Mr. Massey was a Marine or that Natasha Saulnier is a journalist. That'd be my first reaction these days.
What about atrocities in our own government?
Yeah, what you said!
full story (more like fairy tale)
He served 3mos in Iraq and suffers from PTSD....alrighty then..
