The Press in Baghdad


As someone who was in the Press Room in Baghdad when the announcement was made to the Press via a phone call, I can tell you that there were flacks who visibly angry at being “duped.” This was but a small reaction, however, because most of the press had not come in yet, because nothing was formally on the schedule for today. And of course, this fails to take into account the super-egos, such as Brokaw, who were rumored to be in Baghdad already, just waiting to make their appearances.
