"They target and kill journalists…uh"

These words refer to the US military, not the terrorist insurgency in Iraq, and come from the lips of Linda Foley, president of the Newspaper Guild. Just as Eason Jordan before her, Foley offered no evidence to back up her outrageous allegations. From The Washington Times:
"Journalists, by the way, are not just being targeted verbally or politically," Miss Foley said Friday in St. Louis. "They are also being targeted for real, in places like Iraq. What outrages me as a representative of journalists is that there is not more outrage about the number, and the brutality, and the cavalier nature of the U.S. military toward the killing of journalists in Iraq."
Foley's remarks came on the show "The Point". Mark Hyman, the host, was outraged by Foley's accusations:
"These completely irresponsible remarks speak for themselves. Foley should immediately deliver evidence that supports her horrible allegations, or she should immediately resign as Newspaper Guild president."
