Most American media tells you nothing at all about what’s happening to real people on the ground. This lack of information is astounding, given the Bush Administration’s constant claims of “success” in Iraq. I’m tired of reading sterilized accounts of life in the Green Zone. I really want to know what we are getting for the $13 billion we spend on the Iraq occupation each month.
updated by Iraqi journalists working for McClatchy Newspapers. They are based in Baghdad and outlying provinces. These are firsthand accounts of their experiences. Their complete names are withheld for security purposes.
At Inside Iraq I have finally found voices that sound authentic who are telling me about the real lives of real people who live in Iraq. The words of these journalists are written in plain English, but they’re difficult to read on an emotional level. I plan to visit this site regularly.
