Baghdad Burning

One of the reasons our picture of the horrors of Iraq is distorted is that western reporters are either (a) in-bedded with the military, and thus obviously affected by the Stockholm Syndrome, or (b) hiding in their hotel rooms in the increasingly dangerous Green Zone.

A poignant alternative is Baghdad Burning Blog, written by an articulate Iraqi woman living through the nightmare. Important though painful reading.
