The Story that never really happened aka : The alleged looting of the Iraq National Museum in April 2003

Via Davids MedienKritik: Jeffrey Schuster has produced a detailed account of the reporting on the alleged looting of the Iraq National Museum in April 2003, which was one of the first attempts by the media to discredit the U.S. army during the Iraq invasion. It's a good read.

Now this one I'm not so sure of.

I agree that the looting story was way over blown. And in fact, most of the missing pieces were removed years before the invasion.

But, there was looting all over the country. Whether it's ancient museums or local stores, the rampant flow of anarchy was very present. And still is.

You always bring up some interesting stuff. I enjoy your blog.

I've been traveling a lot this week and haven't had time to read the blogs I normally read, or make posts on my own. But thanks for keeping me interested.
