Beyond The Green Zone: Dispatches From An Unembedded Journalist in Occupied Iraq by Dahr Jamail

"An independent American journalist, Dahr Jamail went to Iraq several times since our invasion 'to try to challenge the distortions of the mainstream media.' He succeeded brilliantly. Beyond the Green Zone is a collection of his reports on such subjects as American disinformation about how we captured Saddam Hussein, the battles of Fallujah, and the U.S. campaign to bring freedom and democracy to Iraq. His observations of the gratuitous cruelty of American soldiers toward innocent Iraqis are particularly devastating."
-Chalmers Johnson

"Dahr Jamail does us a great service, by taking us past the lies of our political leaders, past the cowardice of the mainstream press, into the streets, the homes, the lives of Iraqis living under U.S. occupation. He is a superb journalist."
-Howard Zinn

"From the earliest days of the war, Dahr Jamail has been a human conduit for the voices of Iraqis living under U.S. occupation. In the face of tremendous personal risk, his commitment to the crucial, principled task of bearing witness has never wavered, and this extraordinary book is the result."
-Naomi Klein
