As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

Why are the Al-jazeera reports not allowed?
Okay, the report from Al-jazeera where the captured US soldiers are shown (lets presume they are real and no fake) is clearly a violation of the geneve conventions (link found through the . So far so bad. Here in germany they showed this part all day long and it made me really feel so sad for the prisoners of war and for their families. I mean, just in case you didn't see it - they really looked totaly frightened and I felt so with them. This whole thing is not their fault at all, and they have to suffer for a war I still think is wrong. But anyway - why is now Rumsfeld on TV and asking the TV stations not to ait the report? CBS seems to have done it and was slashed by Rumsfeld at the press conference, and he said he hoped, the other stations would not put this on air. Why not? Does he want the families not to suffer when they see their beloved ones in that situation, or is it that he fears to lose popularity points for himself and his president and the whole war? Does he fear, the US opinion about supporting this war might change when people see these pictures. I found a link to the streams here through the link on little green footballs. I find it really hard that you see what the press serves you but after the CNN-thing with the ebassadors' daughter the last time we all should now we can't believe a single thing. It might be a fake that Iraq soldiers shot in the water while they suspected american pilots in there, these prisoners of war might be a fake by Iraq.... and I still have no idea, what the german media make up as speciality for our taste.
