Luke points to this unbelievable story from Seymour Hersh, who is, unfortunately in this case, a very reliable source.

They were a couple weeks together, they knew each other. So orders came down from the generals in Baghdad, we want to clear the village, like in Samarra. And as he told the story, another platoon from his company came and executed all the guards, as his people were screaming, stop. And he said they just shot them one by one. He went nuts, and his soldiers went nuts. And he's hysterical. He's totally hysterical. And he went to the captain. He was a lieutenant, he went to the company captain. And the company captain said, "No, you don't understand. That's a kill. We got thirty-six insurgents."

A Tiny Revolution

The rest.

UPDATE :: Much more detail -- first-hand detail -- on this from UC Berkeley News.
