On May 30th, US troops shot and killed two Iraqi women -- one of whom was pregnant. Nabiha Nisaif Jassim and her cousin Saliha Mohammed Hassan were in a car going to Samarra General hospital where Nabiha was about to give birth. Democracy Now's Amy Goodman speaks with independent journalist Dahr Jamail about the incident and how the US military may have tried to cover it up.

Dahr uses this as an example of the countless "incidents" where Iraqi civilians have died at US hands. He speaks specifically of Haditha, the November 2004 siege of Fallujah and the current operation in Ramadi.
