Does anyone do fact checking when it comes to bashing the Marines?

Marine sings about shooting child dead - Newspaper Edition - Times Online

A US corporal was forced to apologise for writing and singing a song to fellow Marines about him shooting dead an Iraqi child.
A video of Joshua Belile performing Hadji Girl at a base in Iraq surfaced on the internet as President Bush met US troops in Baghdad. In his song, Corporal Belile describes shooting a girl and watching blood flow from her head.

Has anyone on the MSM who has rushed into commenting on this video actually read or listened to the lyrics first? They aren't difficult. Guy falls in love with a girl, follows her home to an ambush, he grabs her as a shield, she gets shot so he returns fire at her brother and father. I note the BBC now has a much fairer account up - obviously someone there has bothered to study the lyrics.

Thanks to Michelle Malkin here are the lyrics of "Hadji Girl"

I was out in the sands of Iraq
And we were under attack
And I, well, I didn't know where to go.
And the first think I could see was
Everybody's favorite Burger King
So I threw open the door and I hit the floor.
Then suddenly to my surprise
I looked up and I saw her eyes
And I knew it was love at first sight.
And she said

Durka Durka Mohammed Jihad
Sherpa Sherpa Bak Allah
Hadji girl I can't understand what you're saying.
And she said
Durka Durka Mohammed Jihad
Sherpa Sherpa Bak Allah
Hadji girl I love you anyway.

Then she said that she wanted me to see.
She wanted me to meet her family
But I, well, I couldn't figure out how to say no.
Cause I don't speak Arabic.
So, she took me down an old dirt trail.
And she pulled up to a side shanty
And she threw open the door and I hit the floor.
Cause her brother and her father shouted
Durka Durka Mohammed Jihad
Sherpa Sherpa Bak Allah
They pulled out their AKs so I could see
And they said
Durka Durka Mohammed Jihad
Sherpa Sherpa Bak Allah
So I grabbed her little sister and pulled her in front of me.
As the bullets began to fly
The blood sprayed from between her eyes
And then I laughed maniacally
Then I hid behind the TV
And I locked and loaded my M-16
And I blew those little f***ers to eternity.
And I said

Durka Durka Mohammed Jihad
Sherpa Sherpa Bak Allah
They should have known they were f***ing with a Marine

The BBC account was as bad as the others originally but got slealth edited when they realised they'd got it wrong. Lots of discussion at Biased BBC about this.

The "Durka Durka Mohammed Jihad" line is straight out of the "Team America" movie. Leftists get a knot in their panties over any damn thing.

I suspect that grabbing children, even the children of terrorists, to use as human shields is rather contrary to US marine policy.

The lyrics never said that the "little sister" was, in fact, a child. It is assumed that "little sister" refers to a child, and not a grown woman.
