Militias, Media, and MaassBy
The situation in Iraq remains as difficult to understand as always. Two women are sitting in front of President Bush’s ranch hoping he can explain it to them. Wren Elhai has the story of one Philadelphia mother’s role in the demonstration.
In our first segment on the most underreported stories in Iraq, Eva Barboni sheds plenty of light on Moqtada Sadr and his Mehdi Army.
Max Thompson has the story of the IMN, Iraqi Media Network, from its conception, to its failure, and to its rebith.
Also, Peter Maass talks with us about his experiences embedded with the Iraqi Special Police Commandos, one of the few Iraqi units actively fighting the insurgency.
