Omar and Mohammed meet Howie
: Howard Kurtz interviews Iraqi bloggers Omar and Mohammed in the Washington Post today. To those who say that they saw only the right-wing on their American visit, note that they fearlessly faced the supposedly liberal media at the Washington Post and at NPR’s WNYC. (I should add that I made the introductions for both interviews.)
“People outside Iraq are more worried than the Iraqis themselves,” says Mohammed.
Still, given the level of violence, aren’t they worried about using their real names on a provocative blog?
“We decided not to be afraid anymore,” Omar says. “We’re tired of being afraid.”
