February 8, 2008

Dahr Jamail Interviewed by TruthOut.orgMatt Renner of Truthout.org asks Dahr about some of the untold stories of the Iraq war, including the hidden (by the US media) ramifications of the so-called "surge" strategy and the backstory to the brutal 2004 sieges of Fallujah.

National Radio Project: The Growing Iraqi Refugee Crisis

Since 9/11, the U.S. Congress has appropriated $610 billion dollars in war-related money. With inflation figured in, that's roughly the same amount spent over the full 16 years of the Vietnam War. The Iraq War alone has cost the U.S. $450 billion dollars.

And what about the cost to the Iraqi people? In addition to civilian casualties, since 2003 hundreds of thousands of Iraqis have been forced to flee their war-torn country to nearby neighboring countries - countries that either don't want them or can't take care of them.

On this edition, correspondent Dahr Jamail takes us to the streets of Damascus, Syria where we hear from the Iraqi refugees themselves and the organizations trying to assist them.

The Bases Are Loaded - A Film by Alternate Focus

Will the U.S. ever leave Iraq? Official policy promises an eventual departure, while warning of the dire consequences of a "premature" withdrawal. But while Washington equivocates, facts on the ground tell another story. Independent journalist Dahr Jamail, and author Chalmers Johnson, are discovering that military bases in Iraq are being consolidated from over a hundred to a handful of "megabases" with lavish amenities. Much of what is taking place is obscured by denials and quibbles over the definition of "permanent." The Bases Are Loaded covers a wide range of topics. Gary Hart, James Goldsborough, Nadia Keilani, Raed Jarrar, Bruce Finley Kam Zarrabi and Mark Rudd all add their observations about the extent and purpose of the bases in Iraq.

"What are the odds that a US military commander of one of these bases is going to say, "Well, OK Iraqis, looks like our job's done here. Here's the keys. Enjoy the movie theater. Have fun in the swimming pool. Enjoy your democracy. Take Care?"

It's just not going to happen. That's my point. These are billion dollar bases. These are Mega Bases. They're permanent bases, and they are there absoultely to stay."

- Dahr Jamail in the film "The Bases Are Loaded".

Talk Nation Radio for June 13, 2007 - Dahr Jamail takes us Beyond the Green Zone

Dahr reads a few paragraphs from his book "Beyond the Green Zone, Dispatches from an unembedded journalist in occupied Iraq". Beyond the Green Zone is published by Haymarket books and is scheduled for release this October. This is the drama behind his coverage, the stories of the Iraqi people, the truth about the dangers he and others faced when hastening to cover events in Baghdad and other cities such as Baquba and Fallujah.

In his introduction to the book Dahr writes, “There are roughly 27 million people in Iraq. Each of them has their own story about what has happened to their country during the U.S. occupation. Their stories define them, and us. They belong in our history, our memory, our perceptions about the future.” We also discuss the vast US embassy under construction in Iraq, long term U.S. policy there, and how the New York Times got it wrong about Fallujah even in their review of a London play about the Iraqi city.

Seymour Hersh gives keynote address at 3 rd Annual Al Jazeera Media Forum in Doha, Qatar. April 1, 2007

Excerpt from his speech:

"As the world collapses around us, as leadership collapses, as we're driven more by the price of oil than the price of integrity, we have a role [as journalists] to play. And to me, that's what it's all about. I complain bitterly. I was just talking earlier today-we have so many terrible shortcomings in our profession. We're very bitchy to each other. We're competitive. We're very narrow.

"There is a young journalist here, Dahr Jamail, whose stuff has been very prescient, and I've four or five times included the brave accounts of some of his work in my stories and editors. It's not just at the New Yorker, it's at the New York Times where I worked very happily for a decade. The first thing you [editors] cut out is any mention of anybody else. That's such a disagreeable aspect of our profession, the competition. Rather than credit a competitor we'll ignore the story. This is general. You all know what I'm talking about."

Among many topics, Dahr talks specifically about the US involvement in the death squads and the sectarian violence in Iraq. Dahr also provides details on the enormity of the US Embassy and the military bases in Iraq; the massive proportions of these projects stand as strong evidence of a long occupation of Iraq planned many years ago.

January 2, 2007 - Democracy Now! Interview: U.S. Army Tries to Force Sarah Olson and Dahr Jamail to Testify Against Ehren Watada

Lt. Ehren Watada, for those who don't already know, became the first commissioned officer to publicly refuse deployment to the unlawful war and occupation in Iraq. While doing this on June 22, 2006, Watada said, "As the order to take part in an illegal act is ultimately unlawful as well, I must refuse that order."

Despite the fact that independent journalist Sarah Olson's reporting of Lt. Watada's statements are publicly available, the U.S. Army has subpoenaed her to testify in the court-martial of Lt. Ehren Watada.

Even though Dahr Jamail simply transcribed and published one of Ehren Watada's speeches - which was recorded and available anyway - Dahr Jamail has been placed on the witness list and may also be forced to appear.

In this interview, Amy Goodman speaks with the two journalists. Sarah and Dahr explain why forcing journalists to testify against their sources is a chilling new attack on journalism and free speech in the US.

December 9, 2006 - Dori Smith interviews Dahr Jamail

In this half hour interview, journalist Dahr Jamail speaks about the reality of the Iraq Study Group Report and what is going on in Iraq today: US support for death squad militias, US air attacks, and the steady intensification of the violence. If US forces withdrew there may be a potential for the Iraqis to contain the worst perpetrators of violence, but without a major policy change the potential for worsening chaos and wider war persists.

December 1, 2006 - NPR interviews Dahr Jamail on State of Iraq Hospitals

The five minute interview with Michelle Norris is a good one. However, if the NPR show were true to its title, "All Things Considered" should have also considered the much larger role that the US has had in interfering with health care in Iraq, rather than focusing on the so called sectarian strife as responsible for the health care catastrophe in Iraq.

A recommended read to compliment this interview is Dahr Jamail's hospital report from a year and a half ago. Kudos to NPR for finally picking up the trail of the medical system catastrophe in Iraq.

Here's what NPR says of the interview:

"All things Considered December 1, 2006 · Iraq's Health Ministry is controlled by Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr's movement, under an agreement struck by ruling parties, and sectarian influence has impeded healthcare, according to Dahr Jamail, an independent journalist who's been covering Iraq's healthcare system for Inter Press Service, a nonprofit news organization focusing on developing countries.

Jamail says that in his interviews with doctors at 13 hospitals in and around Baghdad in 2004 and 2005, he discovered a highly politicized healthcare system in Iraq, as well as other challenges facing the country's ailing hospitals.

Michele Norris talks with Jamail."

November 7, 2006 - Kurt Strand interview Dahr Jamail on Danish National Television.

On November 7, 2006 a lot of attention in Europe was directed toward the elections occuring within the US. National Danish Television interviewed Dahr Jamail on that day, and 10% of the Danish viewing TV at that time watched Dahr explain why US corporate media cannot be trusted in their reporting of the war in Iraq.

This 7 minute video is worth seeing. (the interview is in English, so just wait through the Danish at the beginning)

Talking about the fact of US corporate media distorting the truth from Iraq may raise eyebrows here in the US.

But in Europe, it is quite different. The viewer gets the sense that the same conversation is entirely mainstream in Europe.

Independent Intervention - an award-winning documentary about the US Media coverage of the war in Iraq

INDEPENDENT INTERVENTION shows how a Norwegian filmmaker in the United States questions the US media coverage of the war in Iraq. The film investigates important issues that govern today’s information flow, and looks at how this system reveals itself during times of war and political turmoil. As the major US networks remove human suffering from their presentation of war, Operation Iraqi Freedom is portrayed as a success for the spread of democracy and freedom. This film brings awareness to the disparity between the war the American people see through the corporate controlled media and the realities on the ground in Iraq. INDEPENDENT INTERVENTION explores how the growing media democracy movement in the US works to challenge the mass media.

INDEPENDENT INTERVENTION features Amy Goodman, Noam Chomsky, Dahr Jamail, Danny Schechter, Norman Solomon, David Barsamian, Kalle Lasn, James Zogby and Jim Hightower. It also includes the voices of Howard Zinn, Michael Moore, Bill Moyers, Arundhati Roy, Jeremy Scahill, US Senators and Iraqi people.

Democracy Now! Dahr Jamail Speaks About the November 19, 2005 Haditha Massacre

May 30, 2006 - Dahr Jamail speaks with Amy Goodman on Democracy Now about the Haditha Massacre

An internal military investigation has found that U.S. marines killed as many as 24 Iraqis - including women and children - in the city of Haditha on November 19, 2005 and then tried to cover it up. In this video, Amy Goodman speaks with: an attorney and researcher at Human Rights Watch, independent journalist Dahr Jamail, and the bureau chief for Knight Ridder in Baghdad. Not surprisingly, the day after the Haditha event, Al Jazeera's November 20th, 2005 report about the Haditha massacre was more correct than the western corporate media. So we need to ask: Does the "cover-up" implicate much of the western corporate media as well as individuals in the military?

UK News Of the World shows British Troops Beating Iraqi Youth

February 2006

The UK's News of the World showed a 2 minute video of British Troops dragging a number of Iraqi youth involved in a protest behind a gate and then violently beating them. The News of the World website states that "The News of the World has a long history of supporting British troops - which is why we believe out heroes are shamed by these thugs [the troops doing the beating]". Obviously "these thugs" not only include the numerous individuals involved with the actual beating, but the tens of troops who walked by the incident unconcerned, and the man with the gun and video camera who was filming while cheering the "thugs" on. The video gives the distinct impression that this type of behavior is widespread amongst the British Troops.

"For a well documented, powerful film of what really occurred in Fallujah during the April, 2004 siege, this is a must see. The film begins by investigating why the resistance began in Fallujah shortly after the Anglo-American invasion of Iraq. The film then accurately chronicles what occurred in Fallujah during the failed April siege. I couldn't recommend this more highly. To get a more complete understanding of the failed occupation of Iraq, watch this film and encourage others to do the same." -Dahr Jamail

New Video Tells Dahr's Story

Eyewitness in Iraq: Dahr Jamail, an Unembedded Report

A Pepperspray Production, 28 minutes

Dahr Jamail recognized that Americans were being misled about the US occupation of Iraq, so he went to Iraq to find the truth. After being unembedded in Iraq totaling over 8 months, he returned to the States to tell what he discovered. In this video Dahr Jamail speaks of the horrors of occupation, the use of illegal weapons by American forces, the rip-off of American taxpayers by Bechtel and other US corporations, the shabby and biased media coverage of the situation by US media, and of the resilient determination of the Iraqi people to be free from foreign occupation.

A portion of the price of this video goes to support Dahr in his ongoing efforts.

Dahr Jamail Interviews Mark Manning - Recorded and Produced by Neil MacLean 3/5/2005

Dahr Jamail and Mark Manning were the only two American unembedded journalist inside Fallujah during the two sieges of April and November 2004. Mark Manning spent one week inside Fallujah with a video camera interviewing survivors of the November siege. Hours of video tape documenting the atrocities that occurred in Fallujah were stolen the day Mark returned to the US in a well-timed double break-in that was followed by weeks of intimidation and threats.

In this rare interview, Dahr talks with Mark about Fallujah and recounts the circumstances that journalists face today when reporting on events the US government does not want its citizens to know about.

Video From Falluja

Testimonies From FallujaPepperSpray Productions announces a new 33 min video produced in Iraq by independent Iraqi videographers. Dahr Jamail does the English voice-over and is assisting with the video's dissemination in the US. "Testimonies From Falluja" contains photos and footage from the US assault on Falluja, as well as interviews with Iraqi survivors and refugees.

The US has obstructed - and continues to obstruct - journalists from documenting the horror that was and is Falluja. This video is unique in that it focuses on Falluja, that it was made by a team of independent Iraqi videographers, and that we are able to see it in the US.

The DVD is available for $10 on the PepperSpray Productions website. Funds generated by this video will support further independent reporting from Iraq.
