Pentagon strikes non-embedded journalists
'Within the space of five hours, seven journalists were killed and wounded from US army fire in Baghdad yesterday. American forces also opened fire on the offices of Abu Dhabi television, whose identity is spelled out in large blue letters on the roof. All the journalists were killed and injured in daylight at sites known to the Pentagon as media sites.'

Such a coincidence naturally arouses suspicion that the journalists were deliberately targeted. The motive exists as media that is out of control of the US/Pentagon system threatens to ruin the political goals of the war, and by some estimates has already led to the political defeat of the USA. There have been calls for an inquiry and that should be fully supported.
