Dahr Jamail and Jeremy Scahill are among a tiny minority of independent journalists who continually risk their lives to maintain a “free press” in the United States, one that can expose the effects of US policy: from burned off faces on the streets of Fallujah to Blackwater SUV’s parked on the banks of the Mississippi; from the interrogation rooms of Abu Ghraib to the offices of Al Jazeera; and from the morgues of Baghdad to the bank accounts of DynCorp. The danger is real, as is their courage. It is not just a matter of being banned from corporate media. Journalists, who don’t regurgitate official government press briefings, are targeted by the US government. Integrity and commitment to their craft give Dahr Jamail and Jeremy Scahill the power to expose the layering of lies that bombard Americans from the corporate media on a daily basis. They have been in Iraq. Walk with them through blood stained mosques, bombed out homes, and morgues filled with rows of innocent civilian bodies. Wait in terror, at home, expecting to be swept up into the nightmare of US interrogation and torture. Hear Iraqi voices seething with anger at humiliation and degradation, devastation and carnage. Look into the eyes of a people resisting the brutality of sanctions, the rain of continual bombing raids and the horrors of interrogation and torture.
