Politikens krigsforbryder-historie falder endeligt sammen

Som jeg allerede slog fast i søndags, så er de historier om israelske krigsforbrydelser som blandt andet Politiken rygtemageri af værste skuffe, og nu falder ammestuehistorierne så endeligt HELT fra hinanden:
Two central incidents that came up in the testimony, which Danny Zamir, the head of the Rabin pre-military academy presented to Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi, focus on one infantry brigade. The brigade’s commander today will present to Brigadier General Eyal Eisenberg, commander of the Gaza division, the findings of his personal investigation about the matter… and after approval, he will present his findings to the head of the Southern Command, Major General Yoav Galant.

Regarding the incident in which it was claimed that a sniper fired at a Palestinian woman and her two daughters, the brigade commander’s investigation cites the sniper: “I saw the woman and her daughters and I shot warning shots. The section commander came up to the roof and shouted at me, ‘Why did you shoot at them?’ I explained that I did not shoot at them, but I fired warning shots.”

Officers from the brigade surmise that fighters that stayed in the bottom floor of the Palestinian house thought that he hit them, and from here the rumor that a sniper killed a mother and her two daughters spread.

Og
Regarding the second incident, in which it was claimed that soldiers went up to the roof to entertain themselves with firing and killed an elderly Palestinian woman, the brigade commander investigation found that there was no such incident.

Igen har Politiken altså ageret ukritisk propagandacentral. Video af det ene af Politikens to "vidner", der indrømmer at han da bare fortalte ryger videre i venskabeligt lag, kan findes hos CAMERA. Transscription:
I didn’t see it myself. There were stories like this. I wasn’t in that house and everything I said was only on the basis of rumors. At the gathering it was a friendly talk, and that's how I related to it.

Meget fin afdækning af en løgnehistorie.

Men også dybt, dybt tragisk, for findes der overhovedet nogen mainstream-journalist i dag, der er i stand til at foretage en lignede afdækning hjemme på sit trygge kontor?

Jo, de findes skam. Uden den slags ville det være stort set umuligt at blogge kritisk om feks Palæstina-konflikten.

Der er bare lidt langt imellem dem......
