The silence of mortars
Madelaine Bunting claims that all the news that will come out of Fallujah will be strictly controlled by the US military:
We don't know, and won't know, anything about what happens in the next few days except for what the US military authorities choose to let us know. It's long since been too dangerous for journalists to move around unless they are "embedded" with the US forces. There is almost no contact left with civilians still in Fallujah, the only information is from those who have left.
If thats the case, it makes you wonder how photos like this and this were taken. As a side note, that entire photo essay doesnt include US troops fighting - only them wounded or digging fortifications.
