“If ever one needed evidence that there is a real problem with the American press’ handling of the occupation of Iraq, one need look no further than the fact that it is impossible to find anywhere in the American press — outside of, apparently, Bloomberg News and the Washington Times (!) — the report that Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad Allawi summarily executed six Iraqi detainees by shooting them in the head.”
Why is this not a huge story?
Update – (Thanks to Atrios.) This is so serious that media in other countries are asking why US media is ignoring this story. Iraq’s Human Rights Minister Bakhtiar Amin is investigating. In the UK former foreign secretaryRobin Cook is also calling for an investigation.
