Euphemism of the Day

From CNN (with a hat tip to Holden at First Draft) comes this followup to the November murder of 15 Iraqis in Haditha:
Military investigators are reviewing photographs indicating that Iraqi civilians, including women and children, may have been shot deliberately by U.S. Marines in Haditha last November, according to a military source familiar with the ongoing investigation.

The official said, "It's beginning to look like the Marines were overzealous."
I guess "bloodthirsty war criminals" wasn't in his vocabulary.

As I wrote a long time ago: "Support the troops? Count me out."
