US military will target journalist satellite communications
“A BBC war correspondent says the Pentagon told her the military will target satellite communications of journalists in the upcoming war on Iraq.
In an interview on Irish Radio last Sunday, veteran BBC war correspondent Kate Adie said a senior Pentagon official told her that US planes will target any electronic communications on the ground, even if they are operated by journalists.
Adie also said that when she questioned the Pentagon official about the consequences of targeting journalists, the senior Pentagon officer replied “Who cares? . . . They’ve been warned.”
