Embedded Local Journalist Reports from Iraq: Week 3
Host Tom Fudge speaks with an embedded journalist in Iraq who is with the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force out of Camp Pendleton. He gives us a live weekly update from Iraq about life in a war zone.
Last week, the political landscape of Iraq was dramatically changed by the execution of Saddam Hussein. Or was it? The hanging of the former Iraqi dictator held the rapped attention of the people of the country. But some say it will have little effect on the sectarian fighting that continues to torment Iraq.
Tony Perry is the San Diego bureau chief for the LA Times. And he’s embedded with Camp Pendleton marines in Iraq’s Sunni Triangle. He joins us today to talk about the execution of Saddam and other matters.
