"Then the reports of injuries started to come in. Reuters was one of the few news services to report the unrest. In Iran reporters are only permitted where the regime permits them to go. Violation of this has led to the death of a Canadian photo journalist in the past. As a result, few photo journalists are interested in filming the unrest"
Few had been "interested in filming the unrest" before Kazemi was murdered.

I asked to be put on the ping list recently and am so grateful for this thread. My heart breaks for these brave and proud people and I pray for their freedom.
I just had a phone call where I found myself quoting from this site and discussing the photos, defending the Iranians and regime change, and trying to educate other Americans to stand with the Iranians for their freedom.
Having said that, I plead ignorance regarding what is, or more importantly, what is not, happening. If someone could briefly fill me in as to why nothing is being done to help the Iranians with the stand they are taking. President Bush said we would stand with them as they stood for their freedom.
Why is that ridiculous Amnesty Int'l. running their mouth about terrorist accusations at Gitmo instead of screaming bloody murder about what is happening in Iran?
I apologize for just not getting it, and don't know what I am missing, as I am quite new at following this situation. Thank you for any information to help me understand.
