    Most the "stuff" I already knew but I found it interesting that 90% of all deaths in the Iraq war were on civilians. This embodied journalism is a terrible thing if it is just a biased account for a story. There's more angles then one so that's why it's rational to remain skeptical to just being spoon-fed government agendas.

    after watching this again, i wouldnt call getting a bunch of people who agree with you on video as 'good journalism'. These people making comments of underhand dealings without backing it up with any kind of evidence apart from pilger's nodding.

    Pilger himself is an absolute idiot, he was one of the first people on the US embassy roof after saigon fell in 1975 after years celebrating the NVAs liberating efforts against the evil imperialists.

    he criticises the use of the video released by the IDF which had been edited with labels to draw attention to attacks on IDF forces, yet praises the same practise in wikileaks helicopter video.

      Brilliant piece of journalism.
      Yeah, it was very good, and very shocking.
