For those who haven't seen John Simpson's walk into Kabul have a look before class tomorrow at the following link.  Richard will be spending some time to make sure everyone is up to speed with the content of the essay.
Also read John Simpson's account of the events of that day in his book News From No Man's Land Chapter 15 "Finishing the Job."

And compare these 2 clips from Vaughan Smith on Operation Moshtarak in 2010 with his non-embedded work in Iraq in 1991 in the Frontline book pages 85-125.

The Channel 4 videos will only play in Mozilla Firefox so you will need to download that.

Richard will be discussing all of this in the lecture tomorrow!


For some reason the links just lead to hotmail so you will have to write the web addresses in manually! Sorry
