Sniper training reveals targeting guidance. Some excerpts:
Killing Doctors and Chaplains is suggested as a means of psychological warfare.
If you see a line of soldiers, kill the one you think is the officer. Then, shoot the communications officer - then the machine gunner - then the doctor - if he's there, you'll know by the red cross on his arm.
(Shoot)... the reporter carrying the camera. First because the camera can be used as binoculars; second, it is the most difficult thing to hide the death of a reporter in Iraq.
In light of the targeting journalist line we'll expect a lot of coverage of this in the NY Times, Washington Post, Newsweek, etc. No doubt Reporters Without Borders is preparing a thoughtful response even as you read this.
Oh, that's terrorist training? Never mind.
You miss the point (a little too high and to the Right). In the world of Journalism this is "freedom fighter" training and therefore justifiable.Posted by TR at May 24, 2005 12:24 PM
then the doctor - if he's there, you'll know by the red cross on his arm.
Odd. I thought the red cross was intended to mark the guy you're not supposed to shoot at. Even to the point that it's a war crime to shoot the medical personnel.
Why aren't there front-page stories titled "AQ Manual Calls For War Crimes"?
