Reuters in Baghdad

This is an amazing site by Reuters. It’s heartbreaking. The videos they have assembled, including interviews with journalists and photographers who have captured the in/humanity of the Iraq war, are astounding. It’s a remarkable document of the war told by the people who cover the stories. The design of the site is excellent, communicating quality and sensitivity to it’s subject. Make sure you look through the Profiles and the Timeline for a reminder of how the US and Britain ended up on the other side of the world fighting a cynical war.

“I’ve covered wars before, I’ve never seen what I saw there”
– Samia Nakhoul, Gulf Bureau Chief Reuters.
