Over 4,000 US Combat Deaths, Just a Handful of Images

Michael Kamber and Tim Arango report for The New York Times in Baghdad: "The case of a freelance photographer in Iraq who was barred from covering the Marines after he posted photos on the internet of several of them dead has underscored what some journalists say is a growing effort by the American military to control graphic images from the war. Zoriah Miller, the photographer who took images of marines killed in a June 26 suicide attack and posted them on his web site, was subsequently forbidden to work in Marine Corps-controlled areas of the country. Maj. Gen. John Kelly, the Marine commander in Iraq, is now seeking to have Mr. Miller barred from all United States military facilities throughout the world. Mr. Miller has since left Iraq."

Make Freddie and Fannie Go Green

Brent Blackwelder and James S. Henry, The Nation: "Now is the time to create a green Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. We need to be farsighted as we look to the next generation of houses.

Why Are Neocons Attacking Turkey?

Avni Dogru, Foreign Policy in Focus: "Some neoconservatives in Washington are obsessed with attacking Iran before President Bush leaves office at the end of this year. Hence, they have been pushing the Bush administration for increased economic and political isolation of Iran in order to weaken its current regime. Crucial to this plan is the support of Turkey, a traditional US ally and an increasingly critical player in the region."
