This deceitful headline U.S., Iraqi Troops Clash in Baghdad is shocking. U.S. troops clashing with Iraqi troops?
If you get past the headline, you’ll read: “U.S. and Iraqi troops battled Sunni insurgents hiding in high-rise buildings on Haifa Street in the heart of Baghdad Wednesday, with snipers on roofs taking aim at gunmen in open windows as Apache attack helicopters hovered overhead.”
“Kim Gamel, Associated Press” gets the byline credit. Who’s the enemy in Iraq, anyway?
Gamel is the newly appointed Associated Press Baghdad news editor. Our troops do not deserve this. What an insult to the privilege of a free press.
