Summary:

The ACLU released thousands of pages of documents related to Navy investigations of civilians killed by Coalition Forces in Iraq in July of 2008, which it received in response to a FOIA request. The documents include the investigation of the death of the cousin of the Iraqi Ambassador to the U.S. and include "conflicting accounts of events, questions of credibility, possible command influence issues and cover-ups," maintained the ACLU.

Notes:

The ACLU filed a FOIA request for the documents in June of 2006, and received the documents listed on July 2, 2008. The documents stemmed from eight Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) investigations.
