Maybe they too have something to hide!!! The Sunnis themselves are charging that hundreds have been assassinated, people shot in the head, found in alleys. Because combatants do not expect to lose, and by winning they become secure from prosecution. These attitudes about Karadzic as a leader are not giving any chance to strong Bosnia. Could I give them all my contacts? I find it unsettling about the fact that you were not treated nice while in Bosnia, and at the same time am angry at the behaviour of Serb Orthodox Church. If you sent a guy there, he was going to get tortured and perhaps raped, or whatever, humiliated and brutalized by the special commandos in order whatever information they wanted.

Acclaimed former foreign correspondent Maggie O'Kane among latest senior journalists to leave under Guardian cuts

We have heard nothing from James Steele. This is the only known Iraqi video footage of Steele, a shadowy figure, always in the background, observing, evaluating. So, it was a sense that there was a deeper story to tell here and that the WikiLeaks documents, because they were the actual documents and what the State Department was sending back to Washington about what was going on, that this was a real treasure trove that we should explore, rather than just become excited about the means of these documents being delivered. So, I was very impressed with Colonel Steele. Compulsory redundancies are not currently on the table.

He talked about the importance of building human intelligence information as opposed to just technical information. The truth can be unfair sometimes. She also contributed to the from Bosnia. And he must have known about the death squad activities, and, again, it was common knowledge across Baghdad.

New York Times journalist Peter Maass convinced General Petraeus to allow him and photographer Gilles Peress to visit the commandos in Samarra. He says he was aware of individual militia members in the commandos, but not militia groups. I mean, one of the interesting things I find is that the interest in this in Europe, for example, is huge. They were killing them and dumping their bodies on the streets of Baghdad. I just did not think it was so fair to put all the blame on us Americans. And between that, he goes in and out of the energy business.

And that is an extraordinarily valuable tool for an investigative journalism. Petraeus explicitly told me that he believed very, very strongly in the commandos, thought the commandos were successful, and wanted them to become bigger, stronger and even more prevalent in the fight against the insurgency.

After I had reached them and written a cover story for the newspaper's G2 section, I got a call from the 's documentary department, which was researching a film on child soldiers. The way of life in a monastery is by definition monastic!!! James Steele crops up in these photographs repeatedly. These things were discussed openly, whether it was at staff meetings or, you know, before or after various staff meetings in general conversation. Our information is that while Steele was organizing the platform of torture centers, there was not wide-scale death squad activity. Alan Knight, Scotland I was shocked i have to admit by the reactions in Trebinje.

Some of these were also shown in 2007 in two collections by International. Your comments I must protest at an omission in the otherwise excellent Correspondent on Sunday evening. This is called investment in character. It is incredibly foolish to think that Karadzic is untouchable especially after Milosevic was extradited to Hague. She also tells the truth. His whole body was blue because of the impact of the cables with which he had been beaten. They hung me from the ceiling.
