Dahr Jamail on Unembedded Iraq

June 30, 2014

Dahr Jamail joins us to discuss his experiences as an unembedded journalist in Iraq and the recent developments in the region.

In late 2003, weary of the overall failure of the US media to accurately report on the realities of the war in Iraq for the Iraqi people, Dahr Jamail went to the Middle East to report on the war himself, where he has spent more than one year in Iraq as one of only a few independent US journalists in the country. Dahr has also has reported from Syria, Lebanon, Turkey and Jordan. He has also reported extensively on veterans’ resistance against US foreign policy, and is now focusing on anthropogenic climate disruption and the environment.
