A prominent Iraqi lawyer, Tariq Harb, said, “It’s very painful to see the killers released.” “The fact is they were not punished because they killed Iraqis,” he said. “They were punished for violating the American rules of engagement.” Ali al-Bayati, a member of Iraq’s human rights commission, said the pardons were an indication that no country is serious about prosecuting war crimes. “This hurts us a lot,” Mr. al-Bayati said. “But the accused are American, and the law is American, and the president is American, and we can’t do anything.”
