BAGHDAD, Iraq - The body of an Associated Press employee was found shot in the back of the head Friday, six days after he was last seen by his family leaving for work. Ahmed Hadi Naji, 28, was the fourth AP staffer to die violently in the Iraq war and the second AP employee killed in less than a month. He had been a messenger and occasional cameraman for the AP for 2 1/2 years.

How were his PhotoShop skills? After all, as al-Roto-Reuters have shown us, finding a “reporter” with decent skills in that area can be pretty damn difficult, so if Ahmed was good at it, this could really be a huge blow to AP’s “reporting” from Iraq.

“All of us at AP share the pain and grief being felt by Ahmed’s family and friends,” said AP President and CEO Tom Curley.

“If this keeps up, our ‘reporters’ may have to check out of the bar at the al-Rashid and leave the Green Zone, which would be too horrible for words!”

“The situation for our journalists in Iraq is unprecedented in AP’s 161-year history of covering wars and conflicts. The courage of our Iraqi colleagues and their dedication to the story stand as an example to the world of journalism’s enduring value.”

Which, judging by the “enduring value” of, say, “Captain Jamail Hussein” and his “Tales of 61 Nights”, isn’t much to speak of in the first place.

Naji’s wife, Sahba’a Mudhar Khalil, reported him missing Dec. 30 when he did not return that evening. He had left home by motorcycle in the Ashurta Al Khamsa District in southwest Baghdad at 10:30 a.m., telling her he was going to the AP office.

After having worked tirelessly all night on a “story” about American soldiers burning down an orphanage, no doubt.

I’d pretend I gave a shit, but even His Imperiousness can’t muster that kind of make-believe.

Thatisall.
