20 years since the assassination of José Couso. Cartoon of 09/04/2023 in CTXT

8 April marked two decades since the assassination of cameraman José Manuel Couso Permuy by Lieutenant Colonel Philip de Camp, Captain Philip Wolford and Sergeant Thomas Gibson, occupants of the US Army M1 Abrams tank that fired on the Palestine Hotel in Baghdad.

Two other journalists were killed that day. Today I found some notes from those years and among them was a list of news professionals who fell in that infamous war orchestrated by lies and orchestrated by a trio of murderers.

In all these years I have made more than one vignette, which are around here. Reviewing them, I remember the miserable role of the PP, but also the hypocrisy of the PSOE, which in the first instance got hung up on the No to the War, the demands of Couso's family and the protests against his murder, only to end up being another miserable bootlicker of the murderers. Movements were made that are impossible to forget, such as that farce about"Universal Justice".
