The Corner


A reader says CBS aired the al Jazeera POW interrogation video on Face the Nation this morning; first I heard of it:

I was channel-surfing this morning around 10:30 and happened to see part of

the film showing interrogation of US POWs by Iraqi reporters. This was shown

on CBS’s Face the Nation. Two soliders were shown being questioned by an

Irai reporter. One gave his name. He looked very frightened. I was shocked,

thinking about the possibility that his family had tuned in at the moment I

did. Donald Rumsfeld, the Face the Nation guest this morning, then made his

comments about the violation of Geneva Convention, and later CBS stated that

it had made an editorial decision not to show the film. Make of it what you

will. I hope someone brings this to sharp scrutiny.
