What is going on with media coverage of this?
Here is a quote from Foxnews
That is taken from this article. Not 1300, not 1000+ only 379. Are we even getting the real story on this?
BAGHDAD, Feb. 28 -- Officials overseeing Baghdad's morgue have come under pressure not to investigate the soaring number of apparent cases of execution and torture in the country, the former U.N. human rights chief for Iraq said Tuesday.
On Monday, workers at Baghdad's main morgue said that more than 1,300 bodies had been brought in since the previous Wednesday and that 200 to 300 bodies remained unclaimed. Washington Post reporters saw several dozen bodies on the floor and on gurneys and tables in the entry halls outside the main rooms of the morgue. All the dead appeared to be victims of violence, as did the men in photographs of what morgue workers said were the unclaimed dead.
Samim pointed out that international media organisations were increasingly relying on Iraqi journalists to provide news coverage, due to the frequent kidnapping of foreign reporters. "For this reason, we're being judged and targeted because we're in front of the news," he said.
"Iraq has become hell for journalists because wherever you go or whatever you do, you’re being targeted," said local newspaper journalist Saleh Abdul-Kareem. "We depend on this work for a living and, day after day, more colleagues are being killed."
Some 112 people working for media organisations have been killed, either by insurgents or by US forces, since March 2003, according to data from the IJA. "No other country has reported so many deaths of journalists doing their duty," said Samim.
Asked what Washington would do if civil war broke out in Iraq, Mr Bush told ABC News: "I don't buy your premise that there's going to be a civil war."
He said he had spoken to leaders of all Iraqi sects and "I heard loud and clear that they understand that they're going to choose unification, and we're going to help them do so".

"I do not think that bombing is either an attempt by the Sunnis and Shiites," he says. "It is from other infiltrators who want to make sectarian strife. Those who had bombed Ali Hadi Mosque and those who bombed Sunni mosques are agents for Mossad in the first place, and for the Americans in the second place. The US is the largest beneficiary from the current situation. A civil war delights the Americans. They would be happy viewers."
