Comedy Under Fire


In the midst of war, comedy can be a welcome escape from violence and conflict. The story is no different in Iraq. This week on War News Radio, we hear the jokes that keep Iraqis laughing.

Also, we look at who the media is covering – and not covering – in the war in Iraq. The CEO of Iraqi Airways gives us a glimpse at the skies over Baghdad. Iraqi literature and poetry tell the tale of life before and after Saddam.

And in Iraq 101, we learn the history of the Ba’ath Party and its enduring legacy.

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