BAGHDAD: Reuters news agency urged the US military on Sunday to investigate the killing of one of its journalists by American troops in Baghdad a year ago.
An independent inquiry commissioned by Reuters concluded that the soldiers' shooting of television soundman Waleed Khaled on August 28 last year appeared "unlawful".
Khaled, a former Iraqi army major, left a wife and daughter, and a son born two months after his death.

Former Saddamist turned sound man? Sounds fishy to me.
The terrorists film many of their attacks for use as jihadi porn. I have no doubt that;s what this was.

Did these commies ask for investigation when the proponents of the ideology of death and destruction killed American contractors?

"The terrorists film many of their attacks for use as jihadi porn. I have no doubt that;s what this was."
And our boys on the scene made the right decision.
Could anyone be surprised to see a Reuters "journalist" with a rifle in his hand, on the side of the jiheads?

Sorry, Reuters. Payback is a bitch.
Ummm, this will likely come as a surprise to Reuters but, Baghdad is still considered a WAR ZONE. Areas subject to "criminal acts" won't be defined until the war is over and peace is declared.

Yeah, right. Hey, Reuters; how's that "independent inquiry commission" on the photoshopped pics and the fraudulent reports going?

This request carries the same thoughtful consideration as a similar request by Al Jazeera.
I know there upset about the killing but could you imagine the uproar if they were forced to convert to Christianity at gunpoint?

I see the standards of who Reuters hires to spew their propaganda is what I suspected.

From another article.
Two missiles fired by Israeli aircraft early Sunday morning hit an armored car belonging to the Reuters news agency, moderately wounding two television cameramen and three bystanders,...
Seems as if there might be something to the NSA's "connecting the dots" gig. I wonder if these "newsies" required moderate medical assistance. America and Israel have definitely figured out who the friends of the bad guys are.

The usual propaganda from Al-Reuters.
They're such multicultural fanatics they figure the only "fair" assessment involves a lunatic jihadist spewing anti-Semitic hate.

The Israelis just nailed a couple of Reuters people too. I'd like to know if when Reuters is finished off, can we start on the NY Times?
