At the website of the late Col. Fletcher Prouty you can still hear echoes reverberating from Dealey Plaza, in very Lo-Fi streaming audio. Since I could not find a transcript of this famous 1967 television broadcast online to me help clarify some of the garbled details, I set out to produce one, in order to restore and preserve the fidelity of an echo.
The U.S. has been asked by Iraqi officials to quit running security operations. If that’s not an open invitation to go home, I don’t know what is. So why aren’t US forces packing up? Because Bush doesn’t really want a stable Iraqi government run by Shi’ias.
The massacre of as many as 40 unarmed worshipers in a northeast Baghdad mosque Sunday has triggered a political crisis that threatens to accelerate Iraq’s descent into civil war while sharply intensifying the hatred of millions of Iraqis for the three-year-old US occupation of their country.
Reuters news agency Monday cited Iraq’s security minister accusing “US and Iraqi forces of killing 37 unarmed civilians in the mosque after tying them up.” Other police sources said that the victims numbered around 20.
While US military sources and Iraqi eyewitnesses have given conflicting versions of the bloodbath, it is undisputed that killings were carried out early Sunday evening by a combined force of US special forces and US-trained Iraqi commandos.
