TV reporter Arnett sacked telling it as it is
'Celebrated news correspondent Peter Arnett, famed for his coverage of the Vietnam War and the first Gulf war, has been sacked by NBC after he suggested on Iraqi television that the US war plan had failed... In his controversial comments broadcast during the weekend by Iraqi TV Arnett said "The first war plan has just failed because of Iraqi resistance. Clearly the American war planners misjudged the determination of the Iraqi forces," he told Iraqi journalists.'
