Taking Fire

Friday, May 16, 2008

I'm surprised that it's not mentioned that US and Israeli military forces as a matter of course destroy or take over media media outlets.

You can find this policy in many publicly available military papers.

Didn't Israel bomb media outlets when they destroyed the country of Lebabnon the last time they did it? Why does OTM ignore this?
