BBC to Make Abuse Claims


Thursday, February 21, 2008

Source: The Sun Online





The BBC is to accuse the most highly decorated battalion in the Army of torturing and executing six Iraqi prisoners in cold blood.

The allegations include claims that a 14-year-old boy was garrotted and a man was shot point-blank in the head.

Flagship programme Panorama will claim the prisoners were murdered after being captured during a bloody battle in 2004. The shootout, dubbed the Battle of Danny Boy after a checkpoint where it took place, saw the first bayonet charge in 20 years.

Soldiers from the 1st Battalion, the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment won a Conspicuous Gallantry Cross and two Military Crosses for their bravery.
Sorry if this is a repost but this has really enraged me. What possible right does this biased programme have to challenge the actions of these men who were forced to enter into the most desperate of military actions the bayonet charge. Even more so 4 years after the event. How dare they sully the name of the men involved and drag their honour through the mud how dare they.

The C*nts! They can make what accusations they like, but the aforementioned awards are in no way shape or form easy to come by and the men who participated in an action that contained the words "FIX BAYONETS" have my utmost respect.

Not wishing to copy from a previous thread but is it not time to bin paying for these 'peoples' wages?

I for one will not pay for another TV licence if its going to these lefty cnuts!

I agree completely I've just sent a very s**tty email to the BBC but I fear all I'll get is a crap automated response. It is a disgrace and needs to be highlighted.

Now that's really gritting me, main reason being that I haven't heard any evidence to back up their claims and secondly because it's my old regiment. I was in 3 PWRR until I recently transferred.

The most insane thing is the accusations are being made, without any evidence at all, by a lawyer acting for 9 known insurgents, if this airs the BBC directors and editorial staff should all get the sack and people who really are honest and unbaised put in place for once

There is very little detail of what the programme is actually going to contain, the main sources being The Sun and The Daily Mail - both of which have their own biases - one of which is a profoundly anti-BBC stance.

The BBC has a responsibility to report on such cases. If the case is garbage (which I have no doubt that this is), then the BBC has an excellent platform to refute it, and as I say we do not yet know what the content will be.

I am extremely proud and privileged to be from a nation that has the BBC as a national broadcaster. I have no doubt that there is a liberal and North London bias to it, there is an incessant creep of dumbing down and too much emphasis on ratings - but it is still the least biased news and comment outlet that I have been able to find.

In an action with bayonets fixed, shooting someone point blank in the head is a crime?
Only if you're shooting him because you're too lazy to withdraw said bayonet.... :wink:

But seriously, I intend to watch this programme, video it, go over it a few times, then complain like fcuk to the Beeb and the tv regulators if its contents are bo11ox unsupported by evidence!

MAY I SUGGEST WE ALL DO THE SAME!
