: David Bloom of NBC has been doing an utterly remarkable job reporting with the Third Infantry. Tonight on Dateline, he took us inside the sandstorm battering Iraq. We see the sky turn brown. Then the very air turns red, like a bad movie set on Mars. Then it turns black at 4:30 in the afternoon. Bloom uses light sticks to illuminate his face for the camera. Then thunder and rain clean the air and it’s merely beige. Click here and then click on “inside the sandstorm” to watch.
