U.S. soldiers were heard joking around when Waleed Khaled’s family came to the scene of the [presumably accidental] shooting. As his tearful relatives inspected his corpse, a U.S. soldier said "Don’t bother. It’s not worth it." A few other soldiers joked among themselves just a few feet from the body… Khaled is the 66th journalist to be killed in Iraq since the March 2003 invasion. In comparison, a total of 63 journalists were killed in the Vietnam War.
