Behind the walls of Baghdad

By Libby Spencer

Crooks & Liars posts a video series that takes us to the streets in Baghdad where the elite media are unable to go for fear of being shot on sight. A Guardian journalist, who is also a native Iraqi, returns to his home and finds the 'success' of the surge is not what it's cracked up to be. Watch it in full. It's under 15 minutes long in total.

Part Two: The Killing Fields.

Part Three: The Lost Generation.

Horrifying. It looks more like a living hell than peace and normalcy to me.

  • What the hell would you expect from a bunch of Arabs! They're the great pigs of the earth! This is basically the best they can behave unless they have a dictator like Saddam executing people indiscriminately.
