one more thing

By the way -- regardless of whether they were shot from front or back or both (with that many rounds, they could have been shot in a whole lotta different directions), their bodies were found kneeling inside the vehicle. How exactly were they "rushing" him, when he was guarding them from outside the vehicle???

And Pantano's version of the story of the exact nature of the "threat" posed to him by his unarmed captives has changed slightly in about 5 different interviews. It is painfully unclear why he did what he did, until you take into account his personality. As he himself said:

"I believed that by firing the number of rounds that I did, I was sending a message that we were no better friend, no worse enemy."

Where exactly in the rules of war is that justification supported?
