Holy crap! The US military will deliberately target independent journalists!
Sometimes I just can't help myself. Original article was here on Atrios and my original point was here in the comments.

I am willing to concede that the US military would want to do everything it legitimately can to prevent Al Jazeera from broadcasting scenes of civilian carnage from Baghdad, but this is just simply over the top.

Yes, I know, the first link included another fine example of argumentum ad hominem, but of the abusive variety which is really the only version that gives any satisfaction.
