PRAISE FOR DAHR JAMAIL AND BEYOND THE GREEN ZONE


"While the powerful media conglomerates embedded on
the ground with the invading and occupying forces,
Jamail embedded with the suffering people of Iraq and
uncovered the horrors of this war of 'liberation.'
Dahr Jamail is the conscience of American war
reporting, the quintessential unembedded reporter."
–Jeremey Scahill, author, Blackwater

"Every conflict spawns a handful of journalists who
are willing to not only brave the war zone but to seek
out the stories ignored by the press pack. The Iraq
War has brought us Dahr Jamail."
–Mother Jones magazine
