Know How You Can Tell The Neo-Cons Are Losing It? They Forgot To "Embed" All The Journalists.

From Reporters Without Borders:

"Police violence against journalists in New Orleans in Katrina aftermath"

"Reporter Tim Harper and photographer Lucas Oleniuk of the Canadian Toronto Star daily were the victims of police violence while covering a clash between police and looters. The police threatened them several times at gunpoint and, when they realised Oleniuk had photographed them hitting looters, they hurled him to the ground, grabbed his two cameras and removed memory cards containing around 350 pictures. His press card was also torn from him. When he asked for his pictures back, the police insulted him and threatened to hit him".
