War Links — Alive in Baghdad; Lt. Ehren K. Watada

Maybe it’s the physical proximity, but too often I feel detached from the chaos and the bloodshed in Iraq, when really U.S. involvement was and is funded entirely by my and your tax dollars. To wake up, and to hopefully gain a more honest perspective about what is happening, I feel obligated to find more sources in order to better understand what is really going on.

  • Alive in Baghdad is a weekly videoblog of interviews with individual Iraqis, footage of daily life, as well as short news segments. Embedded below is a recent video which includes non-soundbite interviews with car bomb survivors.

  1. It is an absolute shame that we have to dig for a real perspective on what is going on over there. That in itself, I believe, is an indictment on both the Government and the major media outlets. One doesn’t surprise me, the other should be better than that.
