3. Kate Adie was interviewed several times by independent media
including Democracy Now and KPFK over a period of approximately a week.

From Democracy Now on March 14 2003 -

A BBC war correspondent says the Pentagon told her the military will target satellite communications of journalists in the upcoming war on Iraq.

In an interview on Irish Radio last Sunday, veteran BBC war correspondent Kate Adie said a senior Pentagon official told her that US planes will target any electronic communications on the ground, even if they are operated by journalists.

Adie also said that when she questioned the Pentagon official about the consequences of targeting journalists, the senior Pentagon officer replied QUOTE: "Who cares? . . . They've been warned."

Adie was the BBC's chief news correspondent in 1989 and has covered major wars including the Gulf War and the conflicts in the former Yugoslavia, Albania, Rwanda, China and Sierra Leone.
