Ruh Oh!
Al-Jazeera's Basra hotel bombed:
A hotel in Basra being used as a base by al-Jazeera's team of correspondents in the city was shelled this morning, the Arabic TV news channel has claimed.

The Basra Sheraton, whose only guests are al-Jazeera journalists, received four direct hits this morning during a heavy artillery bombardment, according to the Qatar-based broadcaster.

No casualties were reported in the incident, but al-Jazeera said it would be writing to the Pentagon again to provide full details of the location of all its journalists and bureaux in Iraq.
Call up the targeting guys - there's new intell! As for the whiners themselves - if they don't want plaster dust in their breakfast, maybe they ought to get out of a war zone. They can write up their propaganda screeds from a hotel anywhere.
