Nadir has claimed that the US military has targetted journalists for lethal attacks. I am unconvinced of this; to the contrary, I find the claim perposterous. If this is occurring:
1. Why aren't more journalists getting killed, if the world's mightiest military in history is targetting them?
2. Why are the reports from Iraq so uniformly contrary to the interests of the military that is supposedly targetting the journalists?
The negative coverage certainly provides an incentive for the military to target the journalists, but this alleged targetting has been totally ineffective, both in terms of killing any journalists and in intimidating them.
