While some in the American MSM fantasize about being the targets of assassinations, for Iraqi journalists this threat is all too real.
Abdul Hussein Khazaal was gunned down by masked terrorists on Wednesday - along with his three-year-old son. Khazaal was a television correspondent for al-Hurra ("The Free"), the US-backed, Arabic-language voice of freedom in the Middle East. Although some islamist clerics have denounced the station as "propaganda", President Bush sees the station as a way to "cut through the hateful propaganda that fills the airwaves in the Muslim world".
The name of Abdul Hussein Khazaal should be rememberd among the rolls of freedom's martyrs.
