Was Haditha a deliberate propaganda ploy by al Qaeda?

by Clarice Feldman from American Thinker

An obscure Marine Corps intelligence summary of the Haditha inquiry that says the deadly encounter was an intentional propaganda ploy planned and paid for by Al Qaeda foreign fighters ... The attack was carried out by multiple cells of local Wahabi extremists and well-paid local gunmen from Al Asa'ib al-Iraq [the Clans of the People of Iraq] that were led by Al Qaeda foreign fighters, the summary claims. Their case was bolstered by Marine signal intercepts revealing that the al Qaeda fighters planned to videotape the attacks and exploit the resulting carnage for propaganda purposes.
