Re: Baghdad Bombing

by Clifford D. May

The Palestine Hotel is a peculiar target. It’s one of the places where many foreign journalists stay.

What might be the strategy behind this? Does it arise from frustration at not being able to successfully attack American military installations?

Or do the terrorists – or “armed men” or “Resistance” – figure that the journalists will be less angry at them than they will at the Americans for not better protecting them?
