CBS News' Lee Cowan, reporting from Baghdad on the courage of the cameramen CBS uses to bring the war to your living room:
"...if they are caught carrying around an American press ID in some of the places we ask them to go they will certainly be less than popular in those places."
The Army says he was turned in by witnesses to his last car bombing. If so that statement has been proven true.
He's innocent until proven guilty, of course, but here are a few reasons they might have been upset:

CBS News Correspondent Jim Stewart reports the military became suspicious when they examined the contents of the camera and found pictures of what appears to be the aftermath of four separate attacks by insurgents using IEDs, improvised explosive devices. The footage, taken so soon after the attacks, suggest the cameraman had to have foreknowledge that the attacks would take place, officials told Stewart. The scenes and timing of the taping are very disturbing, said one official.The CBS story fails to note that the arrest was made at the scene of a car bombing that injured 5 American soldiers.

A couple of useful addresses...CBS will fall back on the "Journalistic Integrity" of Ho Chi Minh(I mean Mike Wallace). Walmart and GM know that their shoppers don't care about journalistic integrity when it comes to the killing of the Sons and Daughters of America.
An employee of CBS News had foreknowledge of attacks against American troops and failed to warn them. I call that aiding and abedding murder.Hide Comments | Show/Add Comments in Popup Window(1) | (Note: You must refresh main page to view newly posted comments here)
