I'd be the first to admit that my coverage of the situation in Iraq has been of dubious quality. Fortunately there are people out there who do this sort of thing well. Several of them are currently doing so from on the ground in Iraq. I highly recommend that you check out the following:

Jo Wilding is a British activist who travelled to Iraq last year with Voices in the Wilderness, she has recently returned to the country and is blogging her experiences. Her dispatches are particularly poigniant for me because I met Jo last year at a meeting in Nottingham when she spoke on her experiences during the US/UK invasion of Iraq and even went for a drink with her afterwards.

Rahul Mahajan is an American author who is in Iraq until April 25th.

Naomi Klein is a Candaian activist and author, most famous for penning the now classic critique of brand culture, No Logo. Her analysis of the occupation has been exceptional and she has recently travelled to Iraq to report on the situation on the ground.

Dahr Jamail is the Baghdad correspondent of the newly established Newstandard, his Iraq Dispatches consciously set out to expose "the effects of warfare and military occupation on everyday Iraqis."

And no doubt there's more that I've forgotten or am simply unaware of.

Knowledge is power. Arm yourself!
