Behind the walls of Baghdad

By Libby

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.

Update: After watching the videos, this Petraeus subordinate sounds overly optimistic, don't you think?
