Facts on the ground

If one is thinking of travelling to Iraq as a journalist, would the US Embassy be the best source of security information? Contact information for the relevant personnel can be found here. Considering the fact that the US military have killed numerous journalists in suspicious circumstances (including the recent near-death experience of Italian reporter Giuliana Sgrena), I would encourage would-be visitors to post-Saddam Iraq source their security info elsewhere. A good place to start could be here.

"Considering the fact that the US military have killed numerous journalists in suspicious circumstances". Of course Antony, these facts wouldn't be the same ones Eason Jordan was relying on, are they?

Don't get me started on Eason Jordan. To suggest that the right-wingers were out for blood, rather than relying on facts, well, that's the truth of that one. There are numerous examples of suspicious circumstances. Ignore them at your peril. Bombing of media studios, killing of many journos, often Arab, frequently receiving little coverage in the west. Is it too hard to accept that maybe the US is targeting jounos?
