Robert Fisk In Baghdad

I just heard Robert Fisk talk on Today FM. He told how the tank that fired on the Palestine Hotel wasn’t being sniped upon. He was halfway between the tank and the hotel itself and didn’t hear any attack. A French film crew in the hotel were filming the tank for 5 minutes and didn’t record any shots. Hours later did an American General not announce that the tank was under attack from snipers? Was he covering up something?
Robert described seeing a father raise his child to a camera for the world to see: all that was left of the child was a head, torso and one arm. The world will never see those images.
Roberted posted an excellent article this morning from Baghdad. Go read it.
