CBS News Team Hit in Baghdad
CBS Website ^ | May 29,2006 | CBS

Posted on 05/29/2006 8:14:56 AM PDT by I still care

CBS/AP) Two London-based members of the CBS News team, veteran cameraman Paul Douglas, 48, and soundman James Brolan, 42, were killed and correspondent Kimberly Dozier, 39, was seriously injured Monday when the Baghdad military unit in which they were imbedded was attacked. They were reporting on patrol with the 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, when their convoy was struck by an improvised explosive device (IED).

The attack was among a slew of car and roadside bombs left about three dozen people dead before noon Monday, including one explosion that killed 10 people on a bus. Nearly all the attacks occurred in Baghdad.

Dozier and her crew are among the latest American television journalists to become casualties in Iraq. Former ABC News "World News Tonight" co-anchor Bob Woodruff and cameraman Doug Vogt suffered severe injuries in a roadside bombing in Iraq Jan. 29, 2006. Woodruff is still recovering from serious head injuries and broken bones. Cameraman Vogt has returned home to France for more rehab.

On April 6, 2003, David Bloom, 39, an American journalist for NBC television, embedded with U.S. troops in Iraq died from an apparent blood clot near Baghdad.

All over the region, explosions began just after dawn, with one roadside bomb killing 10 people and injuring another 12 who worked for an Iranian organization opposed to the regime in Iran, police said.

A car bomb parked near Baghdad's main Sunni Abu Hanifa mosque killed at least nine Iraqi civilians and wounded 25, said Saif al-Janabi, director of Noaman hospital. It exploded at noon in north Baghdad's Azamiyah neighborhood and was so powerful it vaporized the vehicle. Rescue crews and Iraqi army soldiers were carrying stretchers toward waiting ambulances, Associated Press TV footage showed.

A bomb planted in a parked minivan killed at least seven and injured at least 20 when it exploded at the entrance to an open-air market selling secondhand clothes in the northern Baghdad suburb of Kazimiyah.

Another parked car bomb exploded near Ibin al-Haitham college in Azamiyah, also in northern Baghdad, killing two civilians and wounding at least five others - including four Iraqi soldiers, police Lt. Col. Falah al-Mohammedawi said.

In Baghdad's Tahariyat Square, a parked car bomb targeting an American convoy killed one civilian and injured nine , police Lt. Col. Abbas Mohammed Salman said. It was not known if there were any U.S. casualties, but at least one Humvee was seen on fire.

A second bomb targeting an Iraqi police patrol near the square killed one and wounded 10 - including four police.

In other attacks, a roadside bomb killed two police officer and wounded three others in downtown Baghdad's Karradah district, while one man was killed and six were injured when a bomb hidden in a minivan used as a bus exploded.

The day's most serious attack targeted a public bus near Khalis, 50 miles north of Baghdad in Diyala province, an area notorious for such attacks, provincial police said.

All the dead were workers at the Ashraf base of the Mujahedeen Khalk, or MEK, which opposes Iran's regime. The group, made up of Iranian dissidents living in Iraq, said the dead were Iraqi workers heading to their camp.

The blast pushed in the side of the white public bus and peppered its blackened side with shrapnel holes. The bus, later inspected by U.S. Army troops, was streaked in blood, Associated Press TV footage showed.

"We were transporting the workers from Baqouba to the Mujahedeen Khalk when the roadside bomb exploded and killed all these people," one man who was on the bus told AP TV.

Prior to that, she was the chief correspondent for WCBS-TV New York’s Middle East bureau in Jerusalem (February 2002-August 2003), from where she covered the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the war in Iraq.

Before that, Dozier served as the London bureau chief and chief European correspondent for CBS Radio News, as well as a reporter for CBS News television (1996-2002). Her assignments included the war in Iraq, the war in Afghanistan and the hunt for Osama bin Laden, the crisis and refugee exodus in the Balkans, Vladimir Putin’s election, the death of Princess Diana, Northern Ireland's peace process and the Khobar barracks bombing in Dhahran. Dozier has interviewed dozens of newsmakers, including Gerry Adams and Yassir Arafat. In addition to her work for CBS Radio News, she also reported for the CBS Evening News, CBS Evening News weekend editions, The Early Show and , the Network's 24-hour news service.

Dozier was an anchor for BBC Radio World Service’s "World Update" (1996-98), an hour-long, live foreign affairs broadcast, among other programs.

While living in Cairo (1992-95), Dozier did freelance work for CBS Radio News, Christian Science Monitor Radio and Voice of America and wrote for the Washington Post, and San Francisco Chronicle. She served as a Washington, D.C.-based reporter for The Energy Daily, New Technology Week and Environment Week, covering Congressional policy and industry regulation (1988-91).

Dozier is the recipient of three American Women in Radio and Television (AWRT) Gracie Awards — in 2000, 2001 and 2002 — for her radio reports on Mideast violence, Kosovo and the Afghan war.

She was born on July 6, 1966, in Honolulu, Hawaii. Dozier was graduated magna cum laude from Wellesley College in 1987 with a bachelor's degree in human rights and Spanish and from the University of Virginia in 1993 with a master's degree in foreign affairs, Middle East. She lives in Jerusalem.

“The tyrant has fallen. But for some, he’s a fallen hero.... Iraqis are much like abused children: scarred by the man who was both father figure and enforcer. His rules were simple. Obey, and he would provide jobs, food rations, electricity and security. Rebel, and punishment was merciless. But Saddam Hussein also gave Iraqis dignity and pride. He became a symbol of defiance across the Arab world, never backing down from a fight....Those who loved him and those who hated him still can’t separate the man from the country in their minds. For many, his humiliation is their own.”

— Kimberly Dozier in a December 16, 2003 CBS Evening News story about Iraqi reaction to Saddam’s capture. [57]

Elitist? You're joking,no doubt.

On a side note...the State of Massachusetts maintains an interesting website which allows you to search real estate transactions (deeds,mortgages and more) which occur in most of the states counties,including the one that makes up Martha's Vineyard.

If you search "Cronkite" on this site you come up with several entries,*NONE* of which include the address of the property involved.I've read that VIPs,and only VIPs,can have such info deleted from the website.

The Kerrys also did that regarding their Boston mansion by arranging for a trust to purchase the house and apply for the mortgages.

In Massachusetts,some people are *clearly* more equal than others!

No offense to David Bloom but why is he even listed in this report. An "apparent" blood clot. What are they trying to insinuate??

I don't think they were insinuating anything. The reporter probably wasn't firm in the facts, and tossed that in from memory.

The important thing, you see, is that reporters were hurt or killed in Iraq. Everything else pales in comparison. David Bloom died, and Kimberly was severely injured. Nothing else matters.

For weeks now we'll have to hear about the "bravery, hard work, and sacrifice" of this media team trying to bring the news to us...

while the real bravery, hard work and sacrifice of the Coalition soldiers bringing freedom to millions goes unnoticed, if not scoffed at by the MSM.

He was an embedded reporter who chose to crouch in the front of the vehicle that he was riding in to get a good perspective of the route that the convoy was taking.

He would not have gotten the blood clot if he had not been in the crouched position for an extended period of time. [his choice, but still a death as a result of covering the war.]

I'm not waisting my time praying to God about journalists that are part of the problem in Iraq aiding insurgents and terrorists rather than being part of a solution in the war on terrorism.

If people haven't noticed that the leftist drive by media has inappropriately exploited the death of our soldiers in Iraq than it isn't my fault when they get bent out of shape when I show no sympathy for their own carnage.

Using "contrarian-think," this is exactly the strategy I'd use if I was a terrorist. Hitting media people guarantees very high-profile anti-war Western news coverage. This strategy exploits another Western vulnerability and puts more pressure on the Administration.

The fact media people are being targeted tells me terrorist spies have penetrated our military at the highest levels. If I was running the show I'd be having a serious internal traitor hunt.

Maybe the MSM media can now realize what kind of work our soldiers do. So far the MSM has been ,"Oh, so Ivory Tower," ignoring accurate reporting for propaganda.

They are sending correspondence over who are not equipped or arrayed as combat correspondents. Dozier is a fine reporter working for the wrong crowd, and the MSM is hardly a collective of organizations anyone would risk their lives for.

The MSM should help our nation push for freedom in Iraq, and to a large extent, the MSM has encouraged the terrorists in Iraq to keep fighting, and now that encouragement, that treason, now begins to take a toll on their own staff.

Get behind your country, MSM, and help us end this war instead of encouraging it!
