Lifting the veil on Anthony Shadid's death

There's an interesting story at counterpunch this weekend. It's about the circumstances of journalist Anthony Shadid's death. It seems the NYT version of events may not have been accurate.

Here's an excerpt:
At this point, Dr. Shadid said, Anthony called his wife and “gave his last haunting directive: ‘If anything happens to me, I want the world to know the New York Times killed me.’”

If this is true, Anthony Shadid's last wish was that you read this story. I've read it and sadly, it seems plausible.
