Reporter - Dahr Jamail

by John Kaminski -- Let me just say that when a writer on the scene of a dangerous story deliberately leaves his windows open a crack when he goes to sleep at night so nearby bombs won't break them when they explode - and the formula works, although the front door, which was closed tight, DOES blow in! - well, you have a person whose commitment to an important story that needs to be told sets an example for every writer on the planet.

As an editor, I can truly say that this is what reporting - not to mention courage and humanity - is all about.

Such a person - a writer, reporter, and seeker of truth - is Dahr Jamail, whose riveting dispatches as an "unembedded" reporter in Iraq have enabled millions to transcend the mainstream media blackout of real news from that tragic venue and better understand the horrific crimes that are being committed by crazy killers in the name of the American people.

Read a quick interview with him at http://www.newtopiamagazine.net/content ... Jamail.php
