5 years on at the Frontline Club
Not to be outdone, we here at The Frontline Club
mark the 5th anniversary of the Iraq war with a discussion in the club’s event room. Two journalists who were working in Iraq at the time discuss the situation. John Burns was the New York Times Bureau Chief in Baghdad before, during and after the invasion. Alistair McDonald was Reuters Iraq Bureau Chief from June 2005 till February 2007. He covered Iraq during the invasion and early occupation. The BBC’s Nik Gowing chairs the discussion.
