"Iraq: The unseen war"

Salon.com
Aug. 23, 2005
"This is a war the Bush administration does not want Americans to see. From the beginning, the U.S. government has attempted to censor information about the Iraq war, prohibiting photographs of the coffins of U.S. troops returning home and refusing as a matter of policy to keep track of the number of Iraqis who have been killed. President Bush has yet to attend a single funeral of a soldier killed in Iraq.

The grim reality of Iraq rarely appears in the American press. This photo gallery reveals the war’s horrible human toll.
Editor’s note: The following photo gallery contains graphic and shocking images of death and devastation in Iraq."

thanks for posting this, hopefully more us publications will get up off their asses and start covering the war as it is. …if people’s sensitivites are offened, well they goddamed well should be. that it’s had to reach this point for people to really start taking notice is criminal. had us publications coverd this as they did clinton’s blow job soap opera or oj then maybe we’d be in a little bit better shape and be able to make wiser decisions. but the republicans and the barkers on the radio and fox would never have it. reporting the truth is taking sides to them. and the nitwits who are running the newsrooms aparantly agree.
