Behind the Propaganda about the Surge: The Real Situation in Iraq From an Unembedded Reporter

From a blog call The Vinyard of the Saker, this excellent audio podcast is linked, from a speech by Dahr Jamail, who spoke in West Virginia also this summer. He is not with the corporate media, nor works for any contractor like the guest Michael Agnello frequently has on 58 Live who always comes on to say "the surge is working". West Virginians and all Americans need to hear from an independent inside source who puts the entire situation, from his own experience there, in perspective. Among the reality that you will not hear about from the "liberal media" (beholden to the agenda of the International Bankers, neoconservatives, and Zionists) is that over 4.5 million Iraqis are displaced, and over 1 million Iraqis have been killed. Listen to this and stop paying attention to sports or hiding reality behind a stupid Yule tree. THIS IS THE REALITY THAT AMERICANS HAVE CREATED FOR IRAQIS FROM THE CRY OF "SUPPORT OUR TROOPS". Operation Iraqi Freedom is Operation Iraqi Destruction.

On December 8th of this year Dahr Jamail made an interesting in Vancouver, Canada. His speech was recorded by Radio Ecoshock and made available for download here (I have also uploaded a copy of this presentation here).

I highly recommend Dahr Jamail's excellent presentation which totally debunks all the nonsense about the 'Surge' which the corporate media sheepishly repeats day after day. To anyone wanting to hear the truth about what Iraq looks like "Beyond the Green Zone" Dahr's presentation is a must.

Also, make sure to get a copy of Dahr's book Beyond the Green Zone: Dispatches from an Unembedded Journalist in Occupied Iraq.
