Object Lessons: Rantings of a Lone Pamphleteer
US Adopts Terrorist TacticsA short article in Editor & Publisher details the use of extreme force and scare tactics used by American soldiers against an Iraqi journalist. The journalist, (medical) Dr. Ali Fadhil--employed by a British newspaper and by Channel 4 (I presume BBC4) for at least a year--was seized from his bed by American troops, and taken in for questioning. (When did we become Pinochet-ists?)
They also took the opportunity to seize some videotapes from his home. Dr. Fadhil was documenting the misuse of Iraqi funds held by Americans and the British.
Wonder if he got the tapes back? Wonder if he got home? Read the article here.
