"Witnesses reported that the killers [of Atwar Bahjat] drove up, shouting, "Where is the announcer?"
Two more Iraqi TV reporters were assassinated: Al Nahrain correspondent Laith Dulaimi, 29, and technician Muazaz Ahmed, 28.
This reminds me of the Lebanese Uncivil War when people were slaughtered because of the identity card they were carrying.
"Today in Iraq, all the cards are shuffled," said Maytham Shbani, a 29-year-old political reporter at the Egyptian-based TV channel Baghdadiya. "You don't know who is killing whom. Is it the militias? Is it the insurgents? Is it the Ministry of Interior? You will never know."
This passage reminds me of the Alegerian war on civilians; maybe one day in Iraq, after hundred of thousands of innocent people are slaughtered, they will have their "truth and reconciliation" fiasco to cover up the injustice. And, just like in Lebanon, some war criminals will be elected to office and become "leaders" of the country. But don't get too excited: lots of poeple have to die first. Lots.
