The US is after Al Jazeera

Al Jazeera's director-general says cables questioning the channel's independence must be challenged

I was not surprised. Our bureaus in Kabul and Iraq had previously been bombed by the US in an attempt to stifle the channel's independence; one of our journalists in Iraq was killed. But this did not deter us from our mission to provide "the opinion and the other opinion" - our motto; to give a voice to the voiceless; to hold centres of power to account; and to uphold our editorial independence no matter what the cost. We maintained these values even as the US bombed our offices, continuing our coverage of both sides of the story.

I don't believe that the "US is after Al Jazeera".

Al Jazeera is based in Qatar, and because wikileaks supposedly "compromised" US-Qatar relations, the last time I checked the US still has a large military outlet there.

This is the Op-Editor trying to appease those native to the area.
