  The Malmédy Massacre Trial
The most controversial of the Dachau proceedings, and the one that is still discussed to this day, is the infamous Malmedy Massacre case against the Waffen-SS soldiers who were accused of the murder of American Prisoners of War and Belgian civilians during the intense fighting of the Battle of the Bulge.
The incident which became known as "the Malmedy Massacre" happened at the Baugnez Crossroads in the Ardennes Forest in Belgium on December 17, 1944, the second day of fighting in the famous Battle of the Bulge, where American troops suffered 81,000 casualties, including 19,000 deaths, in one of the bloodiest battles of World War II.

Far from denying the truth of these allegations, two of the "un-American" investigators employed by the U.S. Army to extract "confessions" from German prisoners of war, namely, Lt. Colonel Ellis and Lt. Perl, told Judge Von Roden of the Simpson Commission in 1949 that force was necessary in view of the difficulty in obtaining evidence.
The Germans contend that they were accidentally killed because, after their surrender, they had been left disarmed, but unguarded, and were shot down by German tanks whose gunners were unaware that the uniformed Americans impeding their progress were prisoners of war.

 Booman Tribune ~ A Progressive Community
If you watched Countdown last night you were witness to a livid Keith Olbermann, devoid of his usual sense of humor, tearing into Bill O'Reilly for turning the facts on end and accusing American soldiers massacred at Malmedy during World War II of having been the perpetrators of the massacre rather than the victims.
Olbermann proceeded to explain that what really happened at Malmedy was that Nazi troops had gunned down at least 84 captured American prisoners, not the other way around as O'Reilly had suggested.
I think it's possible that O'Reilly used the word Malmedy instead of the actual american atrocity because people would identify more with it and take his point more to heart, facts be damned.

 Respectful Insolence: Oops, he did it again: Bill O'Reilly defames the victims of the Malmedy massacre
Back in October, Jamie McCarthy and I castigated Bill O'Reilly for implying that at Malmedy in December 1944 during the Battle of the Bulge U.S. Airborne troops had massacred Nazis soldiers who had surrendered when in fact the Malmedy massacre was perpetrated by SS troops to whom U.S. soldiers had surrendered.
In Malmedy, as you know, U.S. forces captured SS forces, who had their hands in the air and they were unarmed.
Roman, it should probably come as no surprise that the Malmedy Massacre is less familiar to Poles because it involved US and German troops, and Poland had already had its share of atrocities.

Rosenfeld ruled that "to admit a confession of the accused, it need not be shown such confession was voluntarily made...." Contrary to the rules of the American justice system, the German war criminals were presumed guilty and the burden of proof was on them, not the prosecution.
