Salam Pax’ tour of Baghdad
: Just watched the Nightline tour of Baghdad with Salam Pax. It was a very good segment. Salam is charming and generous with his knowledge and it is unbeatable seeing Iraq from the viewpoint of an Iraqi. Kudos to Koppel for doing the story. Other reporters should have been doing this story long since — whether with Salam or with Zeyad or Omar or Ays…. There are now many viewpoints.
At the end of Koppel’s week in Iraq, he says that things are fragile but concludes, “Yes, on balance, things are improving.”
