Over the last dozen years I made 13 trips to Baghdad to lobby the government to keep CNN's Baghdad bureau open and to arrange interviews with Iraqi leaders. Each time I visited, I became more distressed by what I saw and heard — awful things that could not be reported because doing so would have jeopardized the lives of Iraqis, particularly those on our Baghdad staff.
Ţetta er magnađ ţegar mađur spáir í ţví. Fréttamenn voru í Írak, urđu vitni ađ allskonar óhugnađi en gátu ekki flutt af ţví fréttir ţví ţá vćri alveg pottţétt ađ heimildarmenn ţeirra og ađstođarmenn myndu láta lífiđ auk ţess sem fréttastofurnar yrđu reknar úr landi.
