"We killed a lot of innocent civilians
To us every civilian in Baghdad was a terrorist
They said 'they are now in civilian clothes' that makes everybody free game
But if they came in our perimeter, we lit 'em up
And when we would pull the body out, and when we would search the car, we would find nothing
This took place time and time again
No harm, no foul. That's okay, don't worry about it
Because this is a new type of war, this is an eradication"

"I honestly feel we're committing genocide over here
I don't believe in killing civilians
and I'm not going to kill civilians for the United States Marine Corps"
