On 11/13/2001, the US dropped two 500lb bombs on the offices of Al-Jazeera news network, which in turn accused the US of deliberately targeting the building after being told of its exact location. Al-Jazeera had been criticized by the US government for its coverage of the war, since unlike the US media it was willing to show pictures of civilian victims of the US bombing. On Oct 14, New York Daily News columnist Zev Chafets wrote: "dealing with Al Jazeera is a job for the military. Shutting it down should be an immediate priority." Protesters gathered at the Federal Bldg in SF on 11/14 to oppose the US attacks.
