Hangin' at the CPIC

John McChesney, National Public Radio editing audio in the press room at CPIC

Combined Press Information Center, Green Zone, Baghdad, Iraq - We were at the head of the line this morning, and I know have my official CPIC "Press ID", and we are free to head out of Fallujah.

We have a ride to the helicopter LZ at noon to try to hitch a ride to Fallujah. In the meantime we're hanging out in the press lounge chatting with some of the other journalists that are here.

I had a nice chat with John McChesney of National Public Radio. I'm a big fan of NPR News, and John is definitely somebody I admire a lot.

CPT Lappegaard had an extended conversation about the current political situation in Iraq with a Urban Hamid, a Swedish journalist, who comes to Iraq regularly, and because of his nationality is a little more free to travel independently and meet with Iraqi leaders.

CPT Lappegaard has been in-country for almost a year, Urban has made numerous trips here, and so I pretty much kept my mouth shut and paid attention. No sound bites, but definitely an interesting international exchange of political ideas.

Chris Muir is the cartoonist that I met in Kuwait. He spent two weeks in Iraq at the same time I was there in February 2007, and so thought it would relevant to showcase his work on my site. Here is a link to Chris' humorous travelogue of this Iraq trip:
