As for the other items, you are too biased to read newspapers and magazines and independent sources to draw a fact based conclusion. You criticize a sentence on Archived Documents from 1100 days ago by saying â€śThere is the HINDSIGHT againâ€ť WELL DUH!! Are you a moron. Of course it is HINDSIGHT. One does not speak of historical events with Foresight, or Omnisight, or Clairvoyance.
And as for reporters on the ground, if you remember, which I really doubt your selective memory will grab this particular synapse but during the first two weeks, the two weeks with the BIG BOMBING CAMPAIGN, reporters were not allowed to wander around Baghdad or in ANY of the outlying provinces. These would be the two weeks where wads of people were killed in their houses. And as for how many are male, who knows, these are counted as Civilian, not Military deaths, which are on completely different lists. The only reporters out were those embeds that were very much under control of the military and if you remember Geraldo, he was short leashed pretty quickly when he went off script.
But go ahead and follow Jayhawk in continuing to believe the unbelievable and arguing only with muddle and no logic. Somehow it fits you.
