Did Dutch Soldiers Lie about Killing of Iraqi Civilian?

Dutch marines may have lied about the killing of an Iraqi civilian by their colleague, Sgt.-Maj. Eric O. The Nova news program broadcast fragments of conversations which contradict O's claim that he shot at a group of Iraqis because he felt threatened. His commander declared to a colleague of O. "I covered up for him because he is a colleague and out of respect for the marines. I know that he was wrong as there was no reason to shoot."
