Connecting Haditha to Bush

The Left's goal in the Hadita incident is going to try to connect the incident ultimately to Bush. Consider this story from ABC news.

Military sources told ABC News that there are likely to be charges filed against officers up the chain of command in connection with the killing of 24 civilians by U.S. Marines in Haditha, Iraq, in November 2005.
Those who could be charged include senior officers who were not on the scene at the time of the killing but should have known something wrong had happened and done something about it. Emphasis mine.

Maybe I am missing something, but doesn't this comment from ABC news tie Hadita to marine officers and ultimately to Bush. "those...who were not at the scene at the time of the killing but should have known something wrong had happend..." ABC now is implying that a doctrine of "strict liability" should be applied to marine officers and therefore Bush. Bush should have known something was wrong and should have done something about it. I have heard of this doctrine in civil cases....but for the criminal law? Imagine being prosecuted criminally for something you "should have known about..."

The article concludes:

Sources familiar with the investigations told ABC News that the initial report claiming the civilians were killed by a bomb was filed by Sgt. Frank Wuterich. Wuterich was the top ranking Marine on the team that went into the houses where the civilians were killed. The question now, though, is where were his superiors?

Does ABC News now believe that the entire chain of command (including Bush) should have been on patrol that day at Haditha. They imply that mommy should have been watching over Sgt. Wuterich and that mommy was negligent in letting Sgt Wuterich out to play with out proper supervision? Does ABC News realize that a sergeant is in fact the commanding officer of a squad?

Can't anyone accept that some people including soldiers are criminals. Everytime a person does a criminal act does not mean someone else is responsible other than the criminal. However, it is typical leftism to blame someone else (especially Pres. Bush).
