Taher Thabet, that's who

Time's Web site has a follow-up story with the Iraqi journalism student who broke the Haditha story (link). You'll note that Taher doesn't respond to attention with the appeals to professionalism and objective detachment favored by most American journalists.
“These are people who didn't just kill individuals, they destroyed entire families,” he says. “In Islam, the punishment for such a crime is death.”
You'll also note that Time's coverage, once so humble and unassuming (One Morning in Haditha, March 27, 2006), has become much bolder now that leaks from the military investigation have backed up their story (The Shame of Kilo Company, May 28, 2006).
