'This is live from Iraq and we pray that we make it home' (video)

That's the opening line to a new "rap video" produced by members of Task Force 112 in Iraq. Whether rap is your bag or not, this is a powerful document filled with "graphic language and violent images," according to Newsweek. It's more than ironic that they (or any corporate media) feels the need to label footage from Iraq in such a manner. Were they reporting honestly from Iraq, "graphic language and violent images" would be redundant. (Peek via Robert Greenwald)
