Filmmaker James Longley spent almost three years in Iraq gathering over 300 hours of footage of daily life. The result was the documentary Iraq in Fragments, which is now showing at the Sundance Film Festival. This week on War News Radio, we talk to the director about his unique cinematic perspective on life in Iraq.

We also look into what the U.S. Army is doing to enhance communication between American troops and Iraqis.

And, as part of a new occasional series on American soldiers, we talk to a Muslim Marine about his experience in Iraq.

Finally, in light of Hamas’s victory in the Palestinian elections, we revisit the question of what terrorism can hope to accomplish.

These stories, plus the week’s news, from War News Radio.

Iraq’s professors have dealt with years of sanctions, looting, low pay, and endless bureaucracy. This week on War News Radio, we hear about what’s keeping faculty in Iraq, or driving them away.

We also speak with an international expert about divisions between Iraqi insurgent groups.

And, we hear news of the holiday of Eid ul-Adha. It’s a time for reconciliation, being with family, and feasting. We see how Iraqis marked the occasion.

These stories, plus the week’s news, from War News Radio.
