IN-DEPTH VIDEOS, 13 Jul 2020
11 Jul 2020 – Chris Hedges talks to journalist Dean Yates, who was head of the Reuters‘ Baghdad bureau on 12 July 2007, when two of his employees–Saeed Chmagh and Namir Noor-Eldeen–were shot and killed by the U.S. Army, which tried to cover up the war crime. The killing of the reporters and others was recorded on the now-infamous video Collateral Murder leaked by Chelsea Manning and released by WikiLeaks.
