TWEETING WHILE DRUNK? THAT COULD EXPLAIN WHY MARGARET KIMBERLY RETWEETED THIS OFFENSIVE NONSENSE:
Margaret Kimberley Retweeted
We honor the memory of General Soleimani and the many sacrifices he made fighting US-led or fomented terrorism in the Middle East.
AND IF SHE WAS DRUNK, THAT WOULD EXPLAIN THIS TWEET.
We were that a U.S. contractor was killed in Iraq but no one was identified until a few days ago.
"WE WERE THAT A U.S. CONTRACTOR . . ." WTF IS SHE TRYING TO SAY? HOW DRUNK IS SHE?
BUT HOW DRUNK DO YOU HAVE TO BE IN ORDER TO TWEET THIS?
HOW HARD WAS SHE DRINKING? AT HER AGE? SHE'S NOT A CHICK. SHE'S A BIDDIE. THAT'S WHAT YOU CALL A CHICKEN HER AGE.
POOR OLD WOMAN, WANTS TO PRETEND SHE'S STILL IN HER 20S. HOW SAD.
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
Iraqi crowds headed on Friday to the house of slain correspondent Ahmed Abdul Samad in Basra province, hours after he was killed along with his colleague, cameraman Safaa Ghali, by unknown assailants.
The protesters denounced his assassination and said provincial officials were responsible for unveiling the identity of the perpetrators.
[. . .]
The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) denounced their murder and called for finding the perpetrators.

While we've continued to note the deaths, others (Margaret Kimberley, CODESTINK, Michael Tracey, Aaron Mate, Medea Benjamin, Max Blumehtal and the rest) still haven't bothered. They have registered that they're upset that they might be censored on FACEBOOK -- that possibility is apparently much more important than covering the assassinations of two reporters in Iraq.
Or the massive outrage in Iraq over these murders.

The Committee to Protect Journalism issued the following on Friday:
The Committee to Protect Journalists today condemned the killing of two journalists working for the Iraqi broadcaster Dijlah TV, and urged Iraqi authorities to immediately open an investigation and hold those responsible to account.
Unknown gunmen today opened fire on a car carrying Dijlah TV reporter Ahmed Abdul Samad and camera operator Safaa Ghali, according to news reports and the journalists’ employer. They were covering protests in the southern Iraqi city of Basra, reports said.
“No journalist should have to fear for their safety or be singled out for attack over their coverage of protests,” said CPJ Middle East and North Africa Representative Ignacio Miguel Delgado. “We call on the Iraqi authorities to immediately open an investigation into the killing of Ahmed Abdul Samad and Safaa Ghali and to do their utmost to ensure journalists can cover the protests freely and without fear of reprisal.”
A video posted on Dijlah TV’s website and widely circulated on social media shows Samad slumped in the passenger seat, with a bullet wound to the right side of his head. The video shows at least three bullet holes in the right front door of the car.
Ghali was taken to Basra General Hospital where he died shortly afterward, according to news reports and his employer. A report by the news website Al-Mirbad said that Ghali had three bullet wounds in the chest.
A few hours prior to his death, Samad posted a video on his Facebook account criticizing how Iraqi security forces arrested protesters in Basra but did not arrest or beat those protesting in front of the U.S. Embassy. Dijlah TV also posted undated footage of Samad interviewing protesters on its social media accounts.
Hundreds of people have been killed since the start of protests across Iraq in October over a lack of basic services, unemployment, and government corruption, according to the Independent High Commission for Human Rights of Iraq.
CPJ documented how on November 12, Iraq’s media regulator, the Communications and Media Commission, ordered the shutdown of Dijlah TV, which is based in Amman, Jordan, and seven other outlets, and Iraqi security forces on November 26 implemented that order by raiding the Baghdad office of Diljah TV.
At least two other Iraqi journalists have been killed since the beginning of the protests in Iraq on October 1, according to CPJ research.
The US Embassy in Baghdad issued the following:
US EMBASSY BAGHDAD
Office of the Spokesperson
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 11, 2020
The United States Condemns the Assassination of Ahmed Abdul Samad
The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad strongly denounces the deplorable and cowardly assassination of Jijla TV correspondent Ahmed Abdel Samad and cameraman Safaa Ghali in Basra last night. The ongoing assassinations, kidnappings, harassment, and intimidation of members of the press, social media activists, and pro-reform activists in Iraq by armed groups cannot continue to go unpunished.
The Iraqi government is responsible for upholding the right to freedom of expression, protecting journalists, and ensuring that peaceful activists can practice their democratic rights without fear of reprisal. This can only happen if the perpetrators are found and brought to justice.
Freedom of speech and freedom of expression are the cornerstones of a democratic society. Respecting and upholding these rights is fundamental to the protection and promotion of democracy.
Their 'crime' was covering the protests.

The @nytimes is investigating the killing of two Iraqi journalists on Friday, January 10, in Basra. Journalist Ahmed Abdul Samad and photographer Safaa Ghali. Do you have any information about the incident? Or reliable photo/video evidence? Please reach out.
They covered the ongoing, months long protests that people like Margaret Kimberley can't even give a reTweet to. Months long and they've never bothered to note the Iraqi people taking to the streets and demanding control of their own country and demanding self-determination.
