Send Me To Iraq

So says Michael J. Totten.

It’s time for me to go to Iraq.

I am not going to embed with the military. While it sounds exciting (as well as terrifying), I’m only going to be there a few weeks. War correspondence isn’t something a person does for two weeks.

Instead I’m going to the part of Iraq most journalists ignore: the North. Erbil, Sulemaniya, Dohok, and Halabja – the city near the Iranian border where Saddam Hussein massacred thousands of people with chemical weapons.

Michael does a great job reporting from far away lands. A visit to his blog will give you a taste of some of the reports he’s filed over time. His mix of words and images bring places to life.
