Clinton's promise for more info p. 18

By: Karim Mostafa Not three days after Clinton stood before the American Society of Newspaper Editors Conference in San Francisco and promised a more open flow of NATO information, did London's Daily Telegraph run a report quite to the contrary on April 18.
A senior NATO official told UPI that the United States blocked the release of the cockpit video of an air strike that allegedly killed dozens of refugees traveling in a convoy in the Serbian province of Kosovo. The NATO official continued to say:
"We're not sure there is any sort of a cover-up. It may just be that the Americans are trying to get their stories to tally and will release the video later when the public attention is off."
Footage of the mistaken air strike, which bombed a Kosovar refugee convoy, finally appeared on the networks this week, one week after the tragic error.
