Notes From Basra

Samizdata has an article from their "Man in Basra", who is now back in the UK. He points out the problem with complaining about journalists not giving the "whole picture" in Iraq: that they're there to write stories, that they're not members of a civilian intelligence agency, and that the real story is sometimes not illustratable in a picture or film-loop. Very cogent counter-response to the current "the media is losing us the war in Iraq" meme making the rounds.
