Most of the time, I can do the research myself, but I've just defriended a bunch of people and closed browser tabs over ISIS news because of the graphic accounts and photographs of child killings. I'd like to be able to understand what's happening with ISIS in Iraq in more depth than the NYT coverage, but I keep getting the photographs and videos. Please recommend a range of news sources (I'm okay with upfront biases) that aren't explicit on the atrocities.
Help me find the primary source for Tommy Franks' assertion that the press represented the "fourth front" in the Iraq war. [more inside]
I'm heading to Iraq in several months and I'm looking for great sources of information on the country. This could include:
- Political, cultural, etc blogs
- Blogs from servicemen/civilians working in Iraq
- News analysis
- Iraqi blogs (they can be English or Arabic - I read both!)
- Backgrounders or historical analysis
Be creative! What do YOU read to find out about Iraq? I'd love to hear about it. Thanks for your input in advance!
I want to know more about how Iraq is recovering, but I'd like news and info from the perspective of common Iraqi citizens. All the news stories are either about the insurgent battles, polls and data solely used for political purposes by western partisan groups, or the new government solely in its relation to US withdrawl.
