Murdered photographer’s brother denounces US military crimes

WikiLeaks, a website that publishes anonymously-sourced confidential documents, has published a previously unseen footage showing a US helicopter firing at civilians in Iraq, killing a dozen of them.

Among the dead were two journalists, Namir Nour El Deen, a photographer, and Saeed Chmagh, a driver, both employees of the Reuters news agency.

Namir’s brother, Nabil Nour El Deen, tells Al Jazeera after watching the footage that it is clearly a crime committed by the US military. (Apr 6, 2010)

  1. Thanks for the link. I did see Democracy Now! today with Greenwald and Assange (Wikileaks). But I was appalled by the coverage on NPR and criticised them on their blog for trying to portray the victims as really acting provocatively. This is particularly sickening when spewed from a news organization that has the gall to pretend they have high journalistic standards. Their NPR Blog Nanny removed my comment (maybe they thought I was too dangerous). When i saw the complete video on DN! today, I was even angrier when i reflected on this morning’s NPR show. NPR clearly got together with military brass and decided how they would tell the story. I can only guess that NPR is populated more and more by either idiots or neo-cons. – Jay
