Journalists Attacked: U.S. Army Intel Whistleblower Says Military Targeted Hotel In Which Journos Killed

Former U.S. Army intelligence translator Adrienne Kinne says she saw a military target list that included Baghdad's Palestine Hotel, where journalists were staying during the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Two journalists, Reuters cameraman Taras Protsyuk and José Couso, a cameraman for the Spanish television network Telecinco, were killed when a U.S. tank opened fire on the hotel. Kinne said she had pointed out to a superior that journalists were in the hotel, but now says was told "it was not my job to analyze." U.S. officials have denied targeting the building, but Amy Goodman's story on Kinne suggests otherwise.
