The report says Dogan had apparently been “lying on the deck in a conscious or semi-conscious, state for some time” before being shot in his face.
The forensic evidence that establishes that fact is “tattooing around the wound in his face,” indicating that the shot was “delivered at point blank range.”
The UN isn’t usually this blunt. They didn’t exactly evade the issue, did they? But, of course, the Obama Administration has.
The report confirmed what the Obama administration already knew from the autopsy report on Dogan, but the administration has remained silent about the killing of Dogan, which could be an extremely difficult political problem for the administration in its relations with Israel.
We can’t be having a few executions get in the way of statecraft, now can we?
Tip: Reader Craig
It’s not just one either. If you read the report, there are 5 people total where a very similar pattern was found. Each looks like an execution style killing. The only reason this one is getting attention is because Dogan was actually an American citizen. The others were primarily Turkish.
