    Brian De Palma wants to stop the war, and he thinks his new movie about an Iraqi girl's rape can help, regardless of the consequences or the rights and privacy of Iraqis. In a Friday August 31 Reuters article, De Palma asserted “The movie is an attempt to bring the reality of what is happening in Iraq to the American people. Sky News online picked up the thread that he hoped his film "Redacted" will alert people about “these horrible things things that are happening, this horrible war that I am financing as an American citizen.”De Palma's comments were made...

  • 'Moore' of the Same - (Michael Moore's March 19 rally vs. U.S. war on terror)

    What's fat and white and still doesn't know it's all over? Michael Moore. Yes, the hairy, four-eyed, film-hustling freak has yet to accept the will of the American people and President Bush's re-election. That's right; "Shamoo with a camera" is still out there bashing America and the War on Terrorism. His latest attempt: promoting a global day of protest on the two-year anniversary of the Iraq invasion. This time Michael Moore is eating (I mean, teaming) with an organization called United for Peace and Justice. The global day of protest is set for Saturday, March 19th and calls for vigils,...

USA Today headline: Brutality Intensifies In Iraq. Beheading is portrayed as a consequence of, part of the prisoner abuse story, and a supposed break down in order in Iraq which is the U.S.'s fault.On radio they are playing up the angle that Berg died because Iraq is so "unstable" and Nick's father has given a statement that he's not surprised by his son's murder because the U.S....

    In the Style section last summer we profiled a Los Angeles writer named Micah Ian Wright, who'd just published a shrill antiwar poster book called "You Back the Attack! We'll Bomb Who We Want!" In his book, he described himself as a veteran of combat, a former Army Ranger whose experiences during the 1989 invasion of Panama turned him into a peacenik. In interviews with The Post and other media, he played up that background. Wright, it turns out, is a liar. He never served in the military --

    Misquoted Iraq rape tales arouse Turks' fury By Charles Radin in Istanbul January 5, 2004 The allegations can be heard almost everywhere in Turkey, from farmers' wives in kebab shops, in influential journals and from erudite political leaders: US troops have raped thousands of Iraqi women and young girls since ousting Saddam Hussein. Articles in Turkey's Islamic press reporting the allegations have fanned opposition here to the US invasion of Iraq to white-hot anger - and even, apparently, to murder. Nurullah Kuncak says his father, Ilyas Kuncak, was boiling with rage about the rumoured rapes just before he killed himself...

I've received hundreds of letters from our troops in Iraq -- and they are telling me something very different from what we are seeing on the evening news. What they are saying to me, often eloquently and in heart-wrenching words, is that they were lied to -- and this war has nothing to do with the security of the United States of America.

    Derrick Z. Jackson, one of the most left-wing columnists for the left-wing Boston Globe, wrote today: "The invasion was still a lie. The capture of Saddam Hussein changes nothing about that. There were too many forked tongues in the road to his lair. The way we removed the dictator, we became a global dictatorship." According to dizzy D.Z.: "With no weapons, no ties, and no truth, the capture of Saddam was merely the most massive and irresponsible police raid in modern times. We broke in without a search warrant. Civilian deaths constituted justifiable homicide. America was again above the law....

    LONDON (Reuters) - Saddam Hussein's whereabouts remained a mystery Monday even after his capture, with CNN reporting he had been moved to the Gulf state of Qatar and an Iraqi official insisting he was still in Iraq. The plot only thickened when the U.S. military declined to say where it was keeping the former dictator, who was still being hidden after eight months hiding himself. "For security reasons we cannot identify where he is at the moment," Captain Bruce Frame from U.S. Central Command in Florida told Reuters. U.S.-led troops who toppled Saddam, 66, in April captured him Saturday in...

These terrorists were disguised as civilians and covered their faces with the Kayffia(sp?)when on film. They were filmed with night vision as they fired from a morter and then got back in their car and sped off. Then they mixed in with traffic and drove past American troops on the highway. These reporters tried to justify it by saying they are nuetral as journalists....

    Israel´s leading journalists are totally confused. They simply do not understand this business about the canning of CNN´s Peter Arnett. After all, all that Arnett did was appear on TV and condemn his own country and openly, publicly support the enemy in time of war. That is all! You see, Israeli journalists find this so troubling because, for decades, the main function of Israeli journalists has been to denounce their own country and openly support the enemy in time of war. Their mantra is effectively: "The Enemy of Our Country, Right or Wrong!" Their role model has long been Lord...

    Is perky "Today Show" host Katie Couric actually rooting for Saddam Hussein to survive U.S.'s military's repeated attempts to take him out? It sure sounded that way during a report she delivered on the fate of the Baghdad Butcher yesterday. While chatting about Saddam with NBC's Pentagon correspondent Jim Miklaszewski, the multi-million-dollar morning host asked whether U.S. officials had been able to "confirm reports he was taken to Tikrit, and then Mosul, and then hopefully to Syria." Hopefully? Surely Ms. Couric didn't mean to suggest that she actually hoped the brutal dictator would escape justice by fleeing to another terrorist-sponsoring...

    Propaganda Pete03/31/2003 Poetic justice played out today when foreign correspondent Peter Arnett, recently of NBC and National Geographic, managed to hang himself with his own noose - metaphorically speaking. Working from Baghdad, on Sunday, 03/30/03, he gave an interview to Iraqi TV that amounted to a heaping helping of propaganda. Here are some snippets. Judge for yourself: "The first war plan has failed because of Iraqi resistance. Now they are trying to write another war plan. Clearly, the American war planners misjudged the determination of the Iraqi forces." The above statement is especially egregious because it could only serve to...

    NBC fired reporter Peter Arnett today because he told state-run Iraqi TV that the U.S.-led coalition's first war plan had failed. Arnett issued a back-handed "apology." He said earlier this morning on NBC's "Today" chit-chat show, "I want to apologize to the American people for clearly making a misjudgment." But he couldn't resist this zinger: "I said over the weekend what we all know about the war." NBC had defended him on Sunday. It claimed that he had given the interview as a professional courtesy and that his remarks were analytical. But the heat grew too intense, and this morning...
