Al-Jazeera Spreads “Death and Destruction” In Iraq

Reuters reports from Baghdad that Iraq’s government on Wednesday accused Al Jazeera television of helping to “spread death and destruction” in its reporting.The channel was banned in Iraq two years ago but was allowed to resume operations recently.

The story went on: “The cabinet called on parliament to take legal action against the pan-Arab Qatar-based satellite channel that has angered the Shi’ite-led government with its Iraq coverage.” The cabinet said: “Al Jazeera continues to have a publicly shameless stand against the Iraqi people and to contribute in spreading death and destruction in
Iraq.”

As we have consistently argued and shown in our coverage, Al-Jazeera has been a consistent mouthpiece for the remnants of the Saddam Hussein regime.
