Jimmy Massey, the Marine who committed atrocities?

Via Michelle Malkin comes this St. Louis Post-Dispatch article:

For more than a year, former Marine Staff Sgt. Jimmy Massey has been telling anybody who will listen about the atrocities that he and other Marines committed in Iraq.

OK, we’ve heard these things before. But here’s the kicker:

Each of his claims is either demonstrably false or exaggerated - according to his fellow Marines, Massey’s own admissions, and the five journalists who were embedded with Massey’s unit, including a reporter and photographer from the Post-Dispatch and reporters from The Associated Press and The Wall Street Journal.

A good look into what’s wrong with the mainstream media’s coverage of the Iraq war. I don’t care which side you’re on, this is just complete craziness.
