I would hope, however, that they would take a good look at, for example, the rest of the country outside of Baghdad and Anbar province — at least the reports I get are people are beginning to live a normal life. If you’re a correspondent in a war zone, it’s a little difficult to travel around the country on a free basis. But, look, I’m not going to complain about the media.
