Turn About is Fair Play

Iraq has a bone to pick with that pinnacle of opinion free journalism – Al Jazeera. The Iraqi government has discovered that Al Jazeera has been slanting and even creating news events.

So, what is Iraq doing? They sue.
The Iraqi government has decided to sue Al-Jazeera satellite news channel, after it had falsely aired scenes of a public execution which it identified as taking place in the southern Iraqi province of Karbala, Iraqi government spokesman Ali Al-Dabagh said on Saturday.

In fact, the Iraqi government notes that the killings involved Afghans who allegedly had raped and murdered a girl in the Iranian city of Karaj near the capital.

Earlier Friday, Al-Dabagh warned that al-Jazeera would lose credibility after showing scenes of an execution which it said took place during clashes last March between Iraqi forces and militants of al-Mahdi army loyal to radical Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr.

Like Al Jazeera had any credibility before this.
The "six-month-old scenes show the execution of five Afghans who were convicted of raping and murdering a girl in Iran, which is clear from the white clothes the police were wearing," Al-Dabagh added.
