Coyote Breath BS: Peter Arnett (51* d) RE: BS: Peter Arnett 31 Mar 03

Arnett strikes me as being a bit "full of himself" but I think it was stupid and cowardly of NBC to fire him.

There are two photographers (freelance photojournalists) who are currently missing. One is Molly Bingham, American and the other is a guy from a scandanavian country. Does anyone recall his name?

News reporting under the anarchic conditions of war is difficult at best. I am impressed by the job that all (including Arnett) seem to be doing thus far. I don't agree with some of the points of view expressed by some of the reporters but because there are so many reporters in "bed" and in place, I feel we are getting a fair presentation overall. My only complaint is: I would like there to be MORE coverage.

The military leadership wanted more men and supplies than what they ended up with. The "civilians" kept cutting back and instead of seven divisions of troops we went in with just over three.

I don't know if paring back the size of the force has contributed to the "slowing down" of the war or not but it seems it could have.

Arnett was right in focusing on the war's performance and perhaps Rumsfeld will allow the military leadership to conduct the war as they know it must be conducted.
