"Ooopsie."

Shame they didn't use a tank to shoot him, if true.

The headline was a bit confusing. At first I thought it was saying he was shot while under arrest.

This will be proven to be a frame and a coverup on 60 Minutes II.

That was my second thought. My first one was that troops who were under arrest shot him. I wondered why the troops were under arrest.

You have to think if he was shot at on purpose by US Troops, he would be dead. His is not a tale most shot at by a US soldier tell.

Is it any wonder why 'journalists' (really, left-wing propagandists) are widely considered to be the enemies of America?

Yeah, that one crossed my mind, too. But I thought it was weird that they'd still be armed while under arrest.

"Let's hope they've got enough evidence to try him for treason!"

If by treason you mean treason against the US, it probably won't happen. Most likely he is an Iraqi citizen. Many networks use local cameramen for certain assignments.

Turn him over to the Iraqis. Tell them to interview him. Anything goes. He'll be begging the US to put some panties oh his head and make him pose naked.

Don't be too hard on the cameraman who was caught supporting the terrorists. As CBS employees go, he's entry level anti-American. If he were less hasty and more dedicated to the cause, he'd spend years undermining America, rather than just trying to run out and shoot a few soldiers.

Of course, you know "Peabody" is short for "Pee on the bodies of US Soldiers Award."

Well, if he was being paid to do so, then that's a significant improvement. Our journalists usually do the enemy's work for free.

A friend of mine in Iraq right now told me that the insurgents go up to the reporters and ask them if they would like to come watch a shelling of US troops or some other attack. The reporters just eat that up and follow the terrorists like little lap dogs. My buddy said there is such hatred and animosity for these reporters for doing this that they are quick to say that any reporter killed doing this has only himself to blame. Not only to the reporters not warn the troops that they are getting ready to be attacked, they are glorifying the attackers by broadcasting it.

"CBS cameraman" suggests an employee travelling from Black Rock. It is more likely an Iraqi or other Arab who was hired to be the cameraman/escort of a reporter.

Yeah, and he'd probably be lobbying for the anchor job.

didn't he know he didn't need to go all the way to Iraq to
undermine the US ? Could have just gone the normal lib route and been a professor or editorial page writer.

Sounds like a fragging. If a cameraman is helping the enemy, the only mistake came with the lack of "shoveling" and "shutting up".
