Iraq - US Targeting Journalist Claim

Here we go again! Another journalist claiming US troops target journalists in Iraq without any proof whatsoever. As this blogs reports, Eason Jordan redux.

This time the claim is made by Linda Foley, President of the Newspaper Guild and Communication Workers of America.

“Journalists, by the way, are not just being targeted verbally or …ah, or… ah, politically. They are also being targeted for real, um…in places like Iraq. What outrages me as a representative of journalists is that there’s not more outrage about the number, and the brutality, and the cavalier nature of the U.S. military toward the killing of journalists in Iraq.”

“They target and kill journalists…uh, from other countries, particularly Arab countries like Al -, like Arab news services like Al-Jazeera, for example. They actually target them and blow up their studios with impunity…”

The site has video links to her comments.

Blogswarm time folks! She needs to be made to produce the evidence or be fired. This is just more fodder for the terrorists to use against our troops.
