Taking Fire

Friday, May 16, 2008


In last week’s clashes in Beirut, Hezbollah targeted the headquarters of the Al Mustaqbal television station and newspaper. But this wasn’t a simple case of media suppression. Rami Khouri, editor at large at the Daily Star in Lebanon, explains the political significance of the attacks.

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?
